TAMPA, Fla. (WKBW) — A former Buffalo Sabre has joined an Atlantic Division foe, in the sunshine state.

The Tampa Bay Lightning signed former Sabres defenseman Zach Bogosian to a one-year deal.

The Lightning's official Twitter account announced Bogosian signed a one-year deal worth $1.3 million.

Bogosian, 29, of Massena, N.Y. appeared in just 19 games on the blueline for the Sabres in the 2019-20 season, and had his contract terminated by the team last week.

The blueliner spent portions of six seasons in Buffalo playing 243 games, recording 13 goals and 54 assists.

Bogosian is expected to play in the Lightning's game on Tuesday against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
