The Buffalo Sabres announced Tuesday they have agreed to terms on a one-year contract with forward Corey Tropp. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Tropp, 24, made his NHL debut with the Sabres during the 2011-12 season, skating in 34 games and posting three goals and eight points.
A third-round pick (No. 89) in the 2007 NHL Draft, Tropp suffered a season-ending knee injury while playing for the Rochester Americans in the American Hockey League in 2012-13. He had two goals and two assists in six games.
Jamie improves every game and every year. I've only been with him for two years, but as a player and as a person it seems like every week he's getting stronger and better, and becoming a better leader and better captain. He wants the team to be so successful that he's making himself better as a player.
