Sabres sign Lalime to a one-year contract
Buffalo Sabres GM Darcy Regier announced today the Sabres have agreed to terms with unrestricted free agent goaltender Patrick Lalime on a one-year contract. Lalime – who turns 36 today – has spent the past two seasons with the Sabres after signing as a UFA on July 1, 2008.

Lalime (7/7/1974, 6’3”, 189 lbs.) was 4-8-2 for the Sabres last season with a 2.81 GAA and .905 save percentage. On March 27, Lalime became the 66th goaltender in NHL history to record 200 career wins when he backstopped Buffalo to a 7-1 win over Tampa Bay at HSBC Arena.

Lalime has played 12 NHL seasons, compiling a record of 200-169-48 and a 2.57 GAA with Pittsburgh, Ottawa, St. Louis, Chicago and Buffalo. He has also posted 35 career shutouts, including 27 between 2000-04. Lalime was named to the NHL’s All-Rookie Team in 1996-97 with Pittsburgh. During that season he set the NHL record for longest unbeaten streak by a rookie goaltender to start his career by going 14-0-2.
