The Buffalo Sabres announced Wednesday night that the team has re-signed forward Cody Hodgson to a long-term multi-year contract extension. The 23-year-old Hodgson came into training camp as a restricted free agent.
Hodgson broke the news to Sabres fans via a Vine video on the team's official Twitter account earlier this evening.
“We are extremely excited to have signed Cody to a long-term deal,” Regier said. “We feel he is going to be an important piece of our organization’s success in the future and look forward to watching him develop as a player.”
Hodgson (6'0", 194 lbs., 2/18/90) appeared in all 48 games in 2012-13, finishing second among all Sabres skaters with 15 goals and 34 points.
In parts of four NHL seasons, the Toronto, Ontario native has appeared in 139 games between the Sabres and Vancouver Canucks, tallying 77 points (35+42).
