The Buffalo Sabres have signed another forward to a two-way contract to further fill out the ranks of the Rochester Americans and Sabres rosters.

General Manager Darcy Regier and forward Jamie Tardif have agreed on a one year two way deal.

Tardif has spent almost all of his professional career in the American Hockey League, appearing in 438 AHL games.

Last year he saw action with the Boston Bruins during a two game call up stint.  Tardif saw time in a Bruins sweater thanks to the injury to Brad Marchand.

In his 438 games in the top development league to the NHL, Jamie Tardif has 123 goals and 229 points, rounded out with 398 penalty minutes.

His AHL stops have included the Providence Bruins, Manitoba Moose, Iowa Stars, and Grand Rapids Griffins.

Tardif will most likely start the season this year with the Rochester Americans and be called up to the parent Buffalo Sabres in the event of an injury.

His best season in the AHL came with the Griffins, scoring 27 goals and 27 assists in the 2010-2011 season.

He appeared in the 2003 World Junior Championship for team Canada, playing in seven games, notching a goal and four assists.

He made his National Hockey League debut near his hometown, playing in Toronto on February 2, 2013.

Tardif stands at six feet tall, 205 pounds.
