Defenseman Drew Schiestel has signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Buffalo Sabres, the team announced Wednesday. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Chosen in the second round (No. 59) of the 2007 NHL Draft, the 23-year-old has played 156 games in the American Hockey League, with 52 points.

Quote of the Day

It's cool when you think about how many great American players have played the game and the two players that were at that 18-game point streak and what they've done in their careers. It's pretty cool right now, but it was kind of overshadowed by the loss.
