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.
