Girgensons Back For Another Year

The Buffalo Sabres announced yesterday they have signed Zemgus Girgensons to a one-year deal.

The Sabres didn’t announce it, but it’s apparently worth $1.15 million this year.  I’m happy to see him back, hopefully he can get back to the 15 goal mark again.  I can definitely see Gears filling that Jochen Hecht role of just being a generally all-around good player that can be relied upon anywhere in the lineup.  He’s still an RFA too, so there’s not a huge downside to giving the one-year deal in hopes that he plays his way into a long-term deal.
