Sabres agree to terms with Whitmore
Buffalo Sabres GM Darcy Regier announced today the Sabres have agreed to terms on a one-year deal with restricted free agent winger Derek Whitmore.

Whitmore (12/17/1984, 5'11", 185 lbs.) collected 34 points (18+16) in 78 games last season for the Portland Pirates (AHL). In 163 career AHL games with Portland and Rochester, Whitmore has amassed 57 points on 30 goals and 27 assists.

The Rochester, NY native played four seasons at Bowling Green University where he picked up 102 points (70+32). His 70 career goals ranked him in the top 20 in BGSU all-time goal scoring list. Whitmore scored his first professional goal against the Syracuse Crunch (AHL) on April 4, 2008 as a member of the Rochester Americans.
Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
