They reportedly signed Tobias Rieder to a 1-year deal worth $700,000. It’s a one-way deal.
He’s a depth signing who won’t score many goals, but the biggest plus may be his penalty-killing ability. Former Calgary Flames Head Coach Bill Peters said Rieder was “elite” in that area, and that’s something the Sabres could definitely use.
