The Buffalo Sabres have signed forward Brett Murray to a two-year, entry-level contract.
Murray, 22, was selected by the Sabres in the fourth round (99th overall) of the 2016 NHL Draft. He joined the organization on a one-year AHL contract prior to last season and went on to lead Rochester Americans rookies with 15 assists and 24 points in 55 games.
"Brett acclimated very well to the AHL and showed continued improvement throughout the season," Sabres general manager Kevyn Adams said. "He has a unique blend of size and scoring ability and we're excited to see his development continue."
The 6-foot-5, 235-pound winger previously led the USHL with 41 goals and ranked second in the league with 76 points as a member of the Youngstown Phantoms in 2018-19, earning First All-Star Team honors.
