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.
