After months of speculation it looks like Buffalo Sabres forward Zemgus Girgensons isn't going anywhere -- at least for now.

Thursday the Buffalo Sabres announced the organization has reached a one-year deal with Girgensons. According to Travis Yost from TSN, the deal is worth "just north of $1MM."

In 2015-16, Girgesons tallied 7 goals and 11 assists in 71 games played. The 22-year-old forward has 70 points in 202 career games. He was selected 14th overall in the 2012 NHL Draft.

In a statement Sabres General Tim Murray said, "Zemgus has grown into a solid two-way player since beginning his career. We hope to see him continue this positive trend and find a consistent role within the club this season as another young player to grow with our group.”
