Sabres sign Benoit Pouliot

The Buffalo Sabres have signed left-winger Benoit Pouliot to a one-year deal worth $1,150,000.

Pouliot was a 4th overall selection in the 2005 Draft. He has played for the Wild, Canadiens, Bruins, Lightning, Rangers and Oilers. His best season arguably came with Edmonton when he scored 19 goals, his career high, in 58 games. 

Pouliot’s career plus/minus rating is +33. He’s proved to be inconsistent, but General Manager Jason Botterill and the Sabres are hoping that the forward can put it together in Buffalo. Pouliot was bought out by the Oilers, and this appears to be a low-risk, high-reward signing for the Sabres.

I founded Buffalo Hockey Central in 2008 and have poured hours and hours into this site. Luckily, we have a great team of writers and designers who have helped keep this up and running despite a ton of out-of-pocket costs. We do this because we enjoy it, and we're desperate to see the Sabres win the Cup someday, but they have to make the playoffs first.
