BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -The Buffalo Sabres have signed 2008 second-round draft pick Luke Adam to a three-year contract and assigned him to their American Hockey League affiliate in Portland, Maine.

Drafted 44th overall, the forward is coming off a season in which he finished second in the voting for Quebec Major Junior Hockey League MVP. Adam finished with career highs with 49 goals and 41 assists for 90 points in 56 games with Cape Breton.

The 19-year-old finished his junior career with 220 points (113 goals, 107 assists) in 236 games split between Cape Breton, Montreal and St. John's.

Earlier in the day, the Sabres recalled forward Mark Mancari from Portland as they prepare to play at Boston.

Quote of the Day

I'm very excited about what happened today. We've worked on this deal with Toronto for a month, or over a month. It got a little bit of legs on draft day, but it really heated up last night, and we were able to complete the deal today.
