Lazar signed by Buffalo

The Buffalo Sabres signed forward Curtis Lazar to a one-year deal on Monday as the Free Agency period opened at noon. 

The deal is at a league minimum of $700K. 

Lazar was a 1st round pick (17th overall) by the Ottawa Senators in the 2013 NHL draft. He played in parts of three seasons with Ottawa and then three more with the Calgary Flames. In 246 career games, he has 15 goals and 36 assists for 51 points. 

To this point, the 24-year-old has not lived up to the potential. He’s a depth signing for Buffalo and could see some most of his time in Rochester this season.

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.
