Dan Paille Re-signs with Buffalo Sabres

Andrew FarrellCorrespondent IJuly 16, 2008

Buffalo Sabres GM Darcy Reiger announced today that the franchise has re-signed forward Dan Paille.

The Wellwand, Ontario native signed a two-year deal, keeping the 24-year-old on the roster until the after the 2009-2010 season. Paille's deal is reportedly worth $900,000 his first year, and $1.35 million the next.

Last season, Paille appeared in 77 games, scoring 19 goals.  Paille was one of Buffalo's top penalty killers last season, and, is hoping to expand his role this season. "I am hoping to be more of a regular in the lineup. I am hoping to get more ice time in that five-on-five role," Paille told WGR 550's Schopp and the Bulldog program today.

"Danny is a talented young player that can make a difference at both ends of the ice," Sabres' general manager Darcy Regier said in a statement. "Danny has been a key component to our penalty killing unit, and we look forward to helping him continue to develop with our club for years to come."

Buffalo also re-signed forwards Clarke MacArthur and Mark Mancari to qualifying offers.

It was also reported the Buffalo Sabres will open up the season October 10, when Guy Carbonneau and his Montreal Canadiens come into town.

Stay tuned, as I will have all the info on the Sabres' schedule, which will be released tomorrow.
