The Buffalo Sabres have signed another one of their restricted free agents. The Buffalo Sabres have come to terms with a young forward, signing Corey Tropp to a one year deal.
Tropp has appeared in 34 games for the Buffalo Sabres, registering three goals and eight points. Last season he appeared in only six games for the Rochester Americans, netting two goals and two assists. He was injured in the season-opener which sidelined him for 72 games of the Americans season.
Corey Tropp was selected by the Buffalo Sabres in the third round of the 2007 entry draft.
In just three seasons with the Rochester Americans, Corey Tropp has played in 109 games, scorring 21 goals and 66 points. He has also amassed 166 penalty minutes.
While the future of the Buffalo Sabres looks bleak for the upcoming season, the Rochester Americans appear to be loading for bear – after two straight first round exits at the hand of the Toronto Marlies – the deep prospect pool that the Buffalo Sabres have acquired should help the Amerks get into at least the second round of the playoffs.
With one less contract to worry about, when will Darcy Regier and Cody Hodgson finally sit at the table and iron out a contract that will keep the Sabres best center under contract for the foreseeable future?
