Here's a bit of good news as we approach the end of the offseason: with the signing of Zemgus Girgensons last Thursday, the Sabres have now officially locked up all of their restricted free agents.
Girgensons agreed to a two-year contract worth an annual average value of $1.6 million. He was the team's last remaining RFA following two-year deals for Johan Larsson, Evan Rodrigues and Nathan Beaulieu and a one-year deal for Robin Lehner.
"I just thought two years was the best for both sides," Girgensons told The Instigators on Friday. "For me it gives a little bit more breathing room, just to ease my mind and not to stress about next season and just play hockey and do my best. I think it's a good deal for both [sides]."
