The Sabres have announced that they re-signed Curtis Lazar to a 2-year deal worth $1.6M.
At 25 years old, it seems Lazar may have found himself a nice team and role. After spending a few years each in Ottawa and Calgary, Lazar came to Buffalo and worked hard on the 4th line.

He scored five goals and five assists over 38 games, but he’s not one to put up a lot of points. His focus will be more on checking and grinding and don’t forget about the crucial faceoffs. Lazar started overtime games on the ice with a primary objective of winning the faceoff. Then, he’d skate right to the bench to allow an elite player on the ice.
Lazar is a young, hard-working player who is perfect for the 4th line. It’s not an exciting signing at all, but he really played well last season. If he can continue that type of play throughout the next two seasons, or better, Sabres fans would be very pleased.
