Don’t be worried if you haven’t heard Tim Conboy’s name before.

The Buffalo Sabres have signed the unrestricted free agent to a one-year deal worth $550,000.

The right winger was drafted in the seventh round (217th overall) by the San Jose Sharks back in 2002.

The only NHL team he has played for is the Carolina Hurricanes.

Conboy has played 59 career games, but has yet to score a goal. He has earned six assists and totaled 121 penalty minutes.

Conboy has yet to play more than 28 games in a season, and that fact is likely to remain true this season as he may not see much playing time with the Sabres.
