Sabres re-sign Larsson to two-year deal, with AAV of $1.475 million


The Buffalo Sabres have brought back 24-year-old forward Johan Larsson on a two-year contract.

The Sabres announced the deal on Saturday, adding this new contract comes with an average annual value of $1.475 million, as both sides avoid arbitration.

Last season, Larsson scored six goals and 11 points in 36 games for the Sabres. That would’ve put him on pace for his most productive season in the NHL so far.

However, his regular season was cut short at the end of December after surgery to repair elbow and wrist injuries. He suffered the injuries on a clean hit into the boards from Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid, ending his campaign.
