BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -Veteran forward Adam Mair re-signed for three years with the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday.
Mair earned a slight raise above the $675,000 he made last season. The deal was announced by his agent, Robert Gerow, and reached a day before Mair was eligible to become an unrestricted free agent.
The seven-year NHL veteran spent the past four seasons with Buffalo. He had two goals and nine assists in 82 games last season and added a career-high five points (one goal, four assists) in 16 playoff games.
Mair's signing comes as the Sabres expect to lose co-captains Chris Drury and Daniel Briere to free agency. Briere announced he'll test the market, and Drury is expected to follow.
Drury's agent, Mark Witkin, and the Sabres declined to discuss the negotiations.
