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.
It is really special. I had a lot of friends and family here tonight, and for my first [NHL] game in here it was great. I played here as an elementary-school player in the city championships and this was my first time back. It was a lot of fun.
