Buffalo Sabres sign 2012 7th-round pick, D Brady Austin, to 3-year contract

BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Buffalo Sabres signed prospect defenceman Brady Austin to a three-year, entry-level contract.

Austin, 6-foot-3 and 234 pounds, was selected by the Sabres in the seventh round of the 2012 draft. He is coming off a career season in which he had nine goals and 24 assists in 67 games split between Belleville and London in the Ontario Hockey League.

The signing was announced Thursday. NHL teams have until Sunday to sign their 2012 draft picks to retain their rights.

Quote of the Day

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
