It's the second day of training camp and Sabres fans can rejoice, as Drew Stafford will return to the team this season after all.
After contract talks reportedly reached a stalemate earlier this week, Sabres GM Darcy Regier said the team was continuing to work with Stafford to try and get a deal done.
On Sunday, the Sabres announced that they have signed Stafford to a two-year deal worth $1.5 mil this season, and $2.5 mil next season.
The team is expected to continue working with Stafford throughout the two-year period to sign a longer-term contract. In the meantime, Stafford is a promising young player who will continue to develop his offensive skills in hopes of signing a better contract in the future.
Last season, Stafford had 20 goals and 25 assists (both career-highs) for a total of 45 points in 79 games.
