The Buffalo Sabres this afternoon signed goalie prospect Devon Levi to a three-year, entry-level contract.
The 6-foot, 190-pound Levi, 21, just completed his junior season at Northeastern, where he was arguably the NCAA’s best goalie over the past two years.
Levi registered a 17-12-5 record with a 2.24 goals-against average and a .933 save percentage and six shutouts in 34 games this season. On Saturday, the Huskies lost their first game of the Hockey East Tournament, ending his college career.
Update: Levi will be reporting to the Sabres, according to a source.
He compiled a 38-22-6 record with a 1.90 goals-against average and a .942 save percentage in 66 career games with Northeastern.
He’s a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award, NCAA hockey’s top individual honor, and the Richter Award, which he won last season as the top college goalie.
Check back for updates. The Sabres play a road game tonight against the Philadelphia Flyers.
