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've never seen anything like that. The great thing is I don't know how many times guys bailed me out where they had to score to keep it alive and they did every time. It was amazing. It's not the way we draw it up, to go 20 rounds here, but obviously it's a big win.
