Buffalo Sabres 4th-round pick, F Colin Jacobs, signs with AHL Rochester

ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Buffalo Sabres prospect forward Colin Jacobs has signed an amateur tryout contract with the team's American Hockey League affiliate in Rochester.

From Coppell, Texas, Jacobs was the Sabres' fourth-round pick in the 2011 NHL draft. He was eligible to be signed by Rochester once his junior career ended last weekend, when Prince George failed to qualify for the Western Hockey League playoffs.

Listed at 6-foot-2 and 207 pounds, Jacobs was named Prince George's player of the year after leading the Cougars with 53 points (25 goals, 28 assists) in 66 games. Overall, he had 44 goals, 45 assists and 234 penalty minutes in 186 career games.

Rochester announced the signing on its website Tuesday.
