Brycen Martin has signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Buffalo Sabres.

The deal was announced on Saturday by the Sabres. Martin had six goals and 37 points in 66 games with the Saskatoon Blades and Everett Silvertips of the WHL during the 2015-16 campaign. He was chosen by Buffalo in the third round (74th overall) in the 2014 NHL Draft.

Sam Reinhart had four assists in 10 games for Canada at the 2016 IIHF World Championship.

Canada captured the gold medal, but Reinhart was used sparingly in his first tournament at that level. He averaged just 6:15 of ice time, which was the lowest among the team's forwards.

Ryan O'Reilly has helped Canada win back-to-back gold medals at the World Championship.

He had 11 points in 10 games at the tournament last year and eight points in 10 matches during the 2016 Worlds. O'Reilly is considered to be a bubble player for Canada's World Cup team.

Ryan O'Reilly has two goals and seven points in eight games with Team Canada in the 2016 Worlds.

O'Reilly's efforts have helped push Canada into the semifinals. This isn't the first time he's shined on Team Canada though. He also participated in the 2015 World Championship and scored two goals and 11 points in 10 contests to help win the gold.

Ryan O'Reilly has been one of Canada's most productive players at the IIHF World Hockey Championships.

The Sabre pivot has scored two goals and registered five points in leading Canada to a 4-0 record thus far. O'Reilly looks poised to surpass his 2015-16, 60-point performance next season with a healthy Evander Kane and a more experienced Jack Eichel by his side.

Rayn O'Reilly registered two assists to pace the Canadians to a 5-1 opening-round game against the United States at the World Hockey Championships in Russia.

O'Reilly is one of five Sabre players competing at the International Tournament taking place for the next few weeks. Sam Reinhart is also skating for Canada, while Hudson Fasching and Jake McCabe are representing the United States. Zemgus Girgensons was also in action on Friday for Team Latvia.

The Sabres odds of getting a top three draft pick in June are considerably longer than they were last season.

Well that's what comes with a little succes. The Sabres have only a 19.2 percent chance of moving into one of the top three draft postions but have a 39.2 percent chance of staying right where they are in the eighth slot. In addition, the odds of the Sabres winning the lottery and getting the number one pick is only at six percent. The Sabres should be able to get a decent player in any event and with Jack Eichel, Ryan O'Reilly, Rasmus Ristolainen, Robin Lehner and Evander Kane, the future looks bright in Buffalo.
Apr 30 - 9:19 AM

Johan Larsson has agreed to a one-year, $950,000 contract with the Buffalo Sabres.

Larsson was set to become a restricted free agent this summer. His new deal is up from the $800,000 he made in 2015-16. He's coming off a season where he scored 10 goals and 17 points in 74 contests.
Apr 29 - 3:58 PM

Buffalo has claimed a 2016 third-round selection from Anaheim because the Ducks failed to win two playoff rounds while using Jamie McGinn in at least 50 percent of its games.

The conditional pick would have became a second rounder in 2017 if the conditions were met. The Sabres have 12 picks in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft on June 24-25 at First Niagara Center.
Apr 29 - 8:01 AM

The future looks bright for the Sabres after a successful season for the team's younger players.

Here is an interesting stat about Buffalo's scoring that should give the Sabre faithful hope that the team is moving in the right direction. Over 70 percent of the scoring points generated by the Sabres came from players under the age of 25 and almost 30 percent of the scoring points were produced by players under the age of 21. Looks like there is a succcessful youth movement going on in Buffalo.

Hudson Fasching has been added to the U.S. World Championship hockey team.

The tean will compete in Russia against other hockey nations next month. Fasching was a University of Minnesota scoring star this past season with 38 points in 37 games. He also was up for a cup of coffee with the Sabres. In seven NHL games Fasching scored a goal and registered an assist. Track him as he has some potential to be a fantasy asset in a year or two.

Look for Sam Reinhart to play alongside Jack Eichel at the beginning of the 2016-17 season.

The duo became regular linemates on March 1 and they combined for 12 goals and 29 points in 18 games. "As soon as the puck gets on my stick, and I think vice versa as well, I'm looking for him, said Reinhart. "He's going to get open. He's going to be there to make the play. I think it goes both ways. We're looking for each other now. We've come a long way together." He recorded 23 goals and 42 points in 79 games during his rookie year in 2015-16.
Apr 18 - 9:31 AM

Ryan O'Reilly is the first Sabre to rank in the top 50 in NHL scoring since the 2009-10 season.

With his 60 points, O'Reilly ranked 41st in the NHL scoring race. It is the first time a Buffalo player was counted amongst the NHL's top point producers since Derek Roy ranked 31st in the 2009-10 campaign. That may not seem like much of an accomplishment to many but given how dismal the Sabres were in putting the puck in the net last season, it is something to celebrate.
Apr 16 - 9:28 AM

Zemgus Girgensons is disappointed with his offensive output from the 2015-16 season.

He recorded seven goals and 18 points in 71 games after he earned 15 markers and 30 points in 61 appearances the previous campaign. "Definitely, offense was a struggle and disappointing for myself," Girgensons said. "No doubt about that. Any player will always have a down year. It's definitely on me how I played. It's just bearing down on chances I had, more focus, more drive, more passion for the goals and offense I should have." His average ice time also dropped from 19:04 to 15:02 because the Sabres added Jack Eichel, Ryan O'Reilly and Evander Kane to the roster. He is a restricted free agent this summer.
