Sabres Daily: Fitzgerald Signs In Florida; Bedard Gets Birthday Present



Former Buffalo Sabres defenseman Casey Fitzgerald agreed to a one-year, two-way deal with the Florida Panthers on Monday. Fitzgerald was a third-round pick of Buffalo in 2016 and after four years at Boston College, he split time the next four seasons with AHL Rochester and the Sabres.

Fitzgerald was claimed by the Panthers when the Sabres placed the 26-year-old on waivers in early January but only played four regular seasons and two playoff games for Florida.

Sabres In Case You Missed It


2023 top overall pick Connor Bedard received a nice present on his 18th birthday, an NHL entry-level contract from the Chicago Blackhawks. The young phenom will make $950,000 as a base salary for the next three years but has performance bonuses on his deal that could earn him over $4 million.
