Sabres re-sign forward Matt Ellis
Buffalo Sabres GM Darcy Regier announced the Sabres have re-signed unrestricted free agent forward Matt Ellis to a one-year contract.
The Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday re-signed unrestricted free agent forward Matt Ellis to a one-year contract on his 29th birthday.

Ellis spent the 2009-10 season in Buffalo, where he set career highs in games played (72), points (13) and assists (10). Ellis has 33 points (13 goals, 20 assists) in 187 career NHL games with Buffalo, Los Angeles and Detroit.

A native of Welland, Ont., Ellis joined Buffalo on Oct. 1, 2008, when he was claimed off waivers from Los Angeles. He was originally signed as undrafted free agent by Detroit on May 10, 2002, after playing junior hockey with the St. Michael's Majors.
Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.

— Arizona Coyotes director of amateur scouting Tim Bernhardt regarding the coincidence that six of the organization's top prospects are sons of former NHL players
