The Buffalo Sabres have finished some work, re-signing a restricted free agent before the market opens next week. Andrew Oglevie has signed a two-year deal with the team that will carry an average annual value of $775K.
Oglevie, 25, was an undrafted free agent signing out of Notre Dame in 2018 that showed a marked improvement this season. In 55 games with the Rochester Americans, he scored 15 goals and 29 points, good enough to potentially put himself into a competition for a roster spot with Buffalo next season.
Part of that is the lack of depth on the current roster—the Sabres currently have only five NHL forwards under contract for 2020-21. Oglevie’s signing leaves 12 more pending restricted free agents for the Sabres to deal with.
