The Rochester Americans have signed veteran defenseman Ethan Prow to a two-year contract extension, the team announced Wednesday.
The 29-year-old served as the team’s assistant captain last season. He skated in 70 games and led all Rochester defensemen in goals (10), assists (39), and points (49). Prow also appeared in 10 Calder Cup Playoff games and collected four assists.
The Buffalo Sabres recalled the blueliner on December 29. He scored his first NHL goal in the third period against the New Jersey Devils at KeyBank Center later that night. Prow appeared in three more games with Buffalo after that before being sent back to Rochester.
Prow has recorded 165 points (42+123) in 290 career AHL games between Rochester, Springfield and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.
