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.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.

— Dale Weise, who grew up a Canadiens fan, on scoring the overtime winner in Montreal's 5-4 victory against Tampa Bay in Game 1
