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

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
