Date: Team: Pos:

Sam Reinhart is the Buffalo Sabres' last remaining restricted free agent.

Reinhart scored 25 goals and 50 points in 82 games last season. He's coming off his entry-level contract and Sabres GM Jason Botterill would like to sign him to a multi-year contract. Reinhart is an important part of the Sabres, but there's still months left to negotiate his contract.

The Buffalo Sabres have hired Steve Smith to serve as an assistant coach.

Smith recently resigned as an assistant coach with the Carolina Hurricanes after serving for four years in that role. Prior to that he spent four seasons as an assistant coach with the Edmonton Oilers.
Jul 11 - 1:30 PM

The Buffalo Sabres have signed Rasmus Dahlin to a three-year, entry-level contract.

Dahlin was taken with the top pick in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft. There's a very good chance that he makes the Sabres out of training camp and he could have an immediate impact with the club. While you always want to be a bit hesitant when talking about someone who hasn't played in the NHL yet, there is the potential here for Dahlin to emerge as one of the franchise's cornerstone players.

Jack Eichel will switch his jersey number from 15 to 9 next season.

That's the number Eichel wore growing up and through college hockey, but Evander Kane was already No. 9, so that's why Eichel hasn't been wearing it. Now that Kane is gone, Eichel is free to switch. "For a long time, the number nine has always been a part of my identity as both a person and as a player," Eichel said. "The opportunity opened up to switch and I felt it was the right time to make the change as I begin the next phase of my career as a Sabre."

The Buffalo Sabres acquired Patrik Berglund from the St. Louis Blues on Sunday night.

The Sabres got Berglund, Vladimir Sobotka, Tage Thompson, a first-rounder in 2019 and a second-rounder in 2021, while St. Louis acquired Ryan O'Reilly. Berglund had 17 goals and 26 points in 57 games last season. The 30-year-old had a modified no-trade clause, so it's interesting to see that he accepted a deal to Buffalo. He has four years left on his current deal that comes with a cap hit of $3.85 million. Berglund shouldn't pop up on your fantasy radar.

The Buffalo Sabres acquired Vladimir Sobotka from the St. Louis Blues on Sunday night.

Buffalo also got young forward Tage Thompson, veteran Patrik Berglund, a first-rounder in 2019 and a second-rounder in 2021. Sobotka had 11 goals and 31 points in 81 games with the Blues last season. The 30-year-old has two years left on his current contract that comes with a cap hit of $3.5 million. The move to Buffalo won't make him any more relevant in standard fantasy leagues.

The Buffalo Sabres acquired Tage Thompson, Vladimir Sobotka, Patrik Berglund, a 1st-rounder in 2019 and a second-rounder in 2021 from the St. Louis Blues for Ryan O'Reilly.

Thompson was picked 26th overall by the Blues in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. The 20-year-old accumulated three goals, six assists and a minus-12 rating in 41 NHL games last season. The 6-foot-5, 205-pounder added eight goals and 18 points in 30 AHL games with the San Antonio Rampage. Thompson still has a ways to go before he develops into an impact player, but he certainly has the ability to turn into a top-six forward for the Sabres down the road. Don't expect him to carry much fantasy value heading into next season.

The Buffalo Sabres have signed Scott Wilson to a two-year contract.

The Sabres didn't give Wilson a qualifying offer, but they've decided to bring him back into the fold. The 26-year-old had six goals and 14 points in 66 games with the Red Wings and Sabres last season.
Jul 1 - 7:21 PM

The Buffalo Sabres have signed Brandon Hickey to a two-year, entry-level contract.

The 22-year-old was acquired from the Arizona Coyotes last month. Hickey had six goals and eight assists in 35 games with Boston University. The 2018-19 season will be his first as a professional hockey player.
Jul 1 - 7:16 PM

Scott Wedgewood has agreed to a one-year, two-way contract with the Buffalo Sabres.

Wedgewood had a 3.45 GAA and .893 save percentage in 20 games with Arizona in 2017-18. He'll probably begin the campaign as the Sabres' third-tier goaltender and in the minors.
