Sabres sign Morrisonn
The Buffalo Sabres signed veteran defenseman Shaone Morrisonn to a two-year contract Monday.

Morrisonn spent the last five seasons with the Washington Capitals where he was consistently among Washington's leaders in hits and blocked shots throughout his career, including 163 hits and 104 blocks last season. In 418 career games with Washington and Boston, Morrisonn has 70 points (10 goals, 60 assists), 423 PIMs and is a plus-36.
 
Morrisonn was originally drafted in the first round (No. 19th) by Boston in the 2001 Entry Draft. He was traded to Washington in March 2004 in the deal that sent Sergei Gonchar to the Bruins. Morrisonn played his junior hockey with the WHL's Kamloops Blazers.
Quote of the Day

It is really special. I had a lot of friends and family here tonight, and for my first [NHL] game in here it was great. I played here as an elementary-school player in the city championships and this was my first time back. It was a lot of fun.
