Buffalo Sabres captain Jason Pominville told the Olean (N.Y.) Times Herald he has signed with the Mannheim Eagles of the top German professional league for the remainder of the work stoppage.

Pominville, 30, led the Sabres last season with 30 goals, 43 assists and 73 points while playing all 82 games. It was the fifth time in the past six seasons he's played in every regular-season game.

Selected by the Sabres in the second round of the 2001 NHL Draft, Pominville has 175 goals and 256 assists in 541 regular-season games, and 28 points in 45 Stanley Cup Playoff games.

Quote of the Day
