Buffalo Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier announced today the team has signed forward Drew Stafford to a two-year deal.

Stafford (10/30/1985, 6-2,220 lbs) appeared in 79 games last season collecting NHL career-highs in goals (20), assists (25) and points (45). During the 2008-09 campaign, Stafford had 12 multi-point games and picked up his second career hat trick on January 12 against the Edmonton Oilers.

Quote of the Day

My job was to get that puck and put it on net, and his job was not letting me do it. I got the best of that, but that game's over and to be honest I already forgot about it.
