Sabres sign Franson for two years

21 Comments

The Buffalo Sabres made it official today, announcing a two-year contract for defenseman Cody Franson.

The deal is reportedly worth $6.65 million total, a far cry from what the 28-year-old was targeting heading into free agency.

But the tight market is the Sabres’ gain. Franson should help a Buffalo power play that scored a league-low 30 goals last season.

That Franson went to the Sabres may be disappointing for Bruins fans. He was reportedly in talks with Boston (and Pittsburgh) as recently as last week.
