BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -The Buffalo Sabres signed free agent center Rob Niedermayer to a one-year deal on Wednesday.

Niedermayer has played in 16 seasons in the NHL, and won a Stanley Cup with Anaheim in 2007. Last year he had 22 points in 71 games with the New Jersey Devils.

Niedermayer became Buffalo's second free agent signing since July 1. The Sabres also signed free agent defenseman Jordan Leopold last week to a three-year contract.

Defenseman Mike Weber, meanwhile, signed his qualifying offer on Wednesday. The Sabres' third-round pick in 2006, spent all of last season with Portland of the AHL, where he finished with a team-high plus-18 rating.
