Buffalo Sabres re-sign D Chad Ruhwedel to 2-year contract

BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Buffalo Sabres have re-signed defenceman Chad Ruhwedel to a two-year contract.

Ruhwedel was a restricted free agent after the Sabres retained his rights by making him a qualifying offer last month. The team announced the signing on Wednesday.

Ruhwedel split last season playing for the Sabres and their American Hockey League affiliate in Rochester. Overall, he has one assist in 28 NHL games, and four goals and 24 assists in 47 AHL games.

The Sabres signed the University of Massachusetts Lowell product in April 2013 after Ruhwedel completed his college career.

He's shown signs of being a dependable two-way defenceman and has an opportunity to make the Sabres' lineup this season.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
