The Buffalo Sabres have signed backup goalie Jhonas Enroth to a multi-year deal, the club announced Thursday.

Enroth, who turned 23 last month, appeared in 14 NHL games for the Sabres this past season. He had a 2.73 goals against average and a 9-2-2 record, recording both his first NHL win and first career shutout in 2010-11 after appearing in just one game during the 2009-10 season.

Quote of the Day

They said, 'You're going to love the city. It's smaller than Philadelphia, but you're going to love it. You're going to love the fans. Just watching the playoffs last year, the fans seemed louder there than they did anywhere. I'm really excited about that.
