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.
I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
