The Buffalo Sabres have reportedly signed left winger Johan Larsson to a one-year, one-way deal worth $800,000, according to a report out of Sweden.
“Sure it is good money, but for me this is mainly that I will now be able to continue playing hockey with a very exciting team with new players and new coach,” Larsson said, in the Google translation of Gotland Newspapers. “It will be an exciting season.”
The Sabres have yet to officially announce a deal.
Now 22 years old and a former second-round pick of the Minnesota Wild, Larsson scored six goals and 16 points in 39 games with the Sabres last season. He split the 2014-15 campaign between Buffalo and the AHL Rochester Americans.
He scored 15 goals and had 40 points in 44 games with Rochester.
