BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Earlier this month, the Buffalo Sabres extended qualifying offers to several restricted free agents. On Friday, they inked another one to a deal.

The Sabres have signed forward Johan Larsson to a one-year contract with an AAV of $1.55 million. He becomes the third RFA to accept his qualifying offer.

Last season with the Sabres, Larsson played in 73 games and recorded six goals and eight assists. He's played with the Sabres since being traded to the team from Minnesota back in 2013. He has 79 points in 331 career NHL games.

Four restricted free agents who were extended qualifying offers have filed for salary arbitration. They include Evan Rodrigues, Linus Ullmark, Jake McCabe and Remi Elie.
