BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -The Buffalo Sabres agreed and defenseman Nathan Paetsch agreed to a three-year contract Tuesday.
The 24-year-old Paetsch was scheduled for an arbitration hearing on Thursday after making $495,000 in 2006-07. He played in 63 games for Buffalo as a rookie last season, registering two goals and 24 points.
Paetsch was used as a defenseman and forward and played on the Sabres power play. Of his 24 points, Paetsch picked up nine while the Sabres had the man advantage.
Buffalo selected Paetsch in the seventh-round of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. He won back-to-back silver medals with Team Canada at the 2002 and 2003 World Junior Championships.
The Sabres now have their entire roster under contract for the upcoming season.
