The Sabres and centerman Johan Larsson have come to terms on a new deal ahead of their salary arbitration hearing.
The two sides agreed to a two-year deal worth close to $3 million dollars ($1.475 AAV) on Saturday.
Larsson had established himself nicely a year ago, centering a productive third line before a wrist injury and surgery saw him miss the final 46 games of the regular season.
The 22-year-old had 11 points, which included six goals before being sidelined.
He was one of three players to file for arbitration ahead of the July 5 deadline.
Still no new deals announced for Robin Lehner or newly acquired defenseman Nathan Beaulieu.
