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.
You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
