Another player is returning to Buffalo for at least another season.

The Sabres announced Tuesday that they have brought back veteran forward Zemgus Girgensons on a one-year contract worth $2.5 million.

Girgensons had a chance to test the market as an unrestricted free agent on July 1 but decided to stay with the team that drafted him 14th overall in the 2012 NHL Draft.


The 29-year-old scored 10 goals and tallied eight assists in a career-high 80 games with the Sabres this past season. In 625 career games, he has registered 81 goals and 93 assists.

This comes after the Sabres brought back captain Kyle Okposo on a one-year, $2.5 million contract at the end of May.
