BUFFALO – The Sabres added defense depth today, re-signing Taylor Fedun to a two-year, two-way contract.
The 29-year-old could’ve become an unrestricted free agent Saturday.
Fedun split last season between the NHL and AHL, compiling career-high seven assists and seven points in 27 games, all career highs.
The Princeton product also had five goals and 23 points in 29 appearances with the Rochester Americans.
Fedun showcased some of his offensive prowess on the power play when the Sabres recalled him in November.
Update: The Sabres extended qualifying offers to the following restricted free agents before today’s 5 p.m. deadline: forwards Marcus Foligno, Zemgus Girgensons, Johan Larsson and Evan Rodrigues; defenseman Nathan Beaulieu; goalie Robin Lehner.
Forwards Jean Dupuy and Justin Kea and defenseman Brady Austin were not given offers, making them free agents.
