Amerks re-sign captain Kevin Porter to AHL contract

Captain Kevin Porter will be back for another season with the Rochester Americans.

The Buffalo Sabres’ top affiliate announced today it has re-signed the veteran forward to a one-year AHL contract.

Porter, 33, has spent four seasons with the Amerks over two stints, captaining the club both times.

After three years away – Porter won the Stanley Cup with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2016 – he returned to the Sabres organization in 2017, inking a two-year, two-way deal.

The Amerks have made the playoffs in both seasons since Porter returned.

Porter recorded 10 goals and 39 points in 58 games last season. Overall, he has compiled 122 goals and 331 points in 481 career AHL contests.

The Michigan native has scored 29 goals and 58 points in 249 career NHL outings. He played 43 games with the Sabres during his first stint in the organization in 2012-13 and 2013-14.

Porter won the Hobey Baker Award as the NCAA’s top player at Michigan in 2007-08.
