Sabres bring back winger Matt Moulson on five-year deal worth $25 million

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Matt Moulson is returning to Buffalo, signing a US$25-million, five-year deal with the Sabres.

The goal-scoring winger who was traded twice last season, first from the New York Islanders to the Sabres for Thomas Vanek and then to the Minnesota Wild, reportedly has a no-trade clause in this contract.

Moulson had 23 goals and 28 assists last season. In 394 career games, the 30-year-old has 141 goals and 134 assists.

The Sabres also signed Brian Gionta from Montreal and made a deal with the Canadiens for defenceman Josh Gorges.

Quote of the Day

It was a big dream. [Messi] is probably the best athlete out there, so it's a big honor, for [Kuznetzov] as well. It's maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet the best player in soccer right now. I'm a big Barcelona fan and Messi fan, so it's huge. You can take [Michael] Jordan, [Mark] Messier, [Wayne] Gretzky, those kinds of [people]. It's an honor to meet. It's nice to be in that position.
