Sabres re-sign C Connolly; acquire G Tellqvist @NHLdotcom

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -The Buffalo Sabres signed slick-skating Tim Connolly to a contract extension Wednesday, putting an end to trade speculation involving the playmaking center.

The deal is for two years and $9 million, according to several reports.

Connolly, whose current three-year deal expires after this season, will remain a big part of the Sabres' late-season playoff push.

Sabres general manager Darcy Regier also announced the team acquired goaltender Mikael Tellqvist in a trade with Phoenix. Buffalo gave up a fourth-round draft pick in 2010.

Tellqvist, 7-5-0 in 15 appearances this season, bolsters Buffalo's depth behind Patrick Lalime, who has taken over the starting job in place of injured Ryan Miller.
