BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -The Buffalo Sabres agreed to terms with free agent defenseman Nolan Pratt on Thursday.
Pratt, a 10-year veteran, spent the past five years with Tampa Bay, and was part of the Lightning's Stanley Cup-winning team in 2004.
The addition helps bolster a banged-up Buffalo blueline. Defenseman Dmitri Kalinin is out for another month after spraining his right knee against Carolina on Oct. 24. Defenseman Jaroslav Spacek has also missed the past five games because of a shoulder injury.
Pratt, 32, worked out for the Sabres last weekend when the team was in Tampa Bay to play the Lightning, and a deal appeared imminent.
In 537 career games with Hartford-Carolina, Colorado and Tampa Bay, Pratt has eight goals and 58 points. He was originally drafted in the fifth round of the 1993 draft by the Whalers.
