Sabres, Sam Reinhart agree to 1-year contract

The Buffalo Sabres announced today the team has signed forward Sam Reinhart to a one-year contract worth $5.2 million.

Reinhart, 24, appeared in all of the team’s games for the third consecutive season in 2019-20, recording a career-best .32 goals per game. He finished the team’s Golden Season with 22 goals and 50 points in 69 games. He’s topped the 20-goal plateau in four of his five full NHL seasons.

The No. 2 overall pick in the 2014 NHL Draft has ranked among Buffalo’s top three point-scorers every season since 2015-16, joining Rick Martin, Dave Andreychuk and Jack Eichel as one of four Sabres ever to do so in each of his first five full NHL seasons.

He also ranks second among all Sabres in total goals and points since he made his NHL debut in October 2014.

Reinhart, a native of West Vancouver, British Columbia, was a restricted free agent who had an arbitration hearing scheduled for Tuesday.
