BUFFALO – The Sabres have re-signed winger Remi Elie to a one-year, two-way contract worth $700,000, the team announced today.
Elie and the Sabres settled after this morning’s arbitration hearing.
The Sabres utilized Elie sparingly after claiming him off waivers from the Dallas Stars on Oct. 2, playing him only 16 times before sending him to the AHL in the winter. After recording one assist with the Sabres, the former second-round pick compiled eight goals and 14 points in 25 games with the Rochester Americans.
The 6-foot-1, 215-pound Elie has scored seven goals and 25 points in 106 career NHL outings.
Elie had a one-way contract worth $735,000 last season.
The Sabres have two other unsigned restricted free agents with arbitration hearings: goalie Linus Ullmark (Friday) and defenseman Jake McCabe (Sunday).
The Sabres only have $3,115,476 of projected salary cap space, according to capfriendly.com, so some moves could be coming.
