The Buffalo Sabres have brought back goaltender Malcolm Subban on a one-year, two-way contract worth $850,000, the team announced Tuesday.
Buffalo acquired Subban from the Chicago Blackhawks last season in a trade on December 2. However, the 28-year-old appeared in just four games with the team after sustaining an upper-body injury that required season-ending surgery.
Subban was drafted by the Boston Bruins in the first round of 2012 NHL Draft. He has also played for the Vegas Golden Knights and Chicago Blackhawks.
Subban will likely start the 2022-23 season with the Rochester Americans. By signing a two-way contract, he can be added to the NHL roster at any time. This move gives Buffalo some depth in case of injuries.
