The Sabres re-signed Matt Ellis yesterday, and according to Capgeek.com it’s a two-way deal. It’s a one-year deal, $625,000 while in the NHL and just over 100k while in the AHL. Not a bad example for the kids in Portland, as he works hard every night despite not being the most skilled guy in the league. The move gives Buffalo a trusted forward to call up in case of injury. They shouldn’t ask much more than that of him.
