The Buffalo Sabres on Thursday signed defenseman Tyson Strachan to a one-year contract. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Quote of the Day

For six months, it's a really good accomplishment. But as soon as April [11, the end of the regular season] comes around, no one thinks about the regular season anymore. For six months, it's a real battle to get into the playoffs in the NHL these days. There are a lot of good teams, and it takes consistency over a long time.
