“Adam is an important part of this team and we are glad to have him under contract for three more years,” said Regier. “He brings veteran leadership and a passionate physical presence to the Buffalo Sabres.”
Mair (6’1”, 209 lbs.) scored 11 points (2+9) with 128 penalty minutes in 82 games last season. He also contributed five points (1+4) while playing in all 16 of Buffalo’s games in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
The 28-year-old native of Hamilton, Ont., has 60 points (18+42) and 550 penalty minutes in 334 games over seven NHL seasons with the Sabres, Los Angeles Kings and Toronto Maple Leafs.
Mair was acquired from Los Angeles along with a 5th-round draft choice (Thomas Morrow) in the 2003 Entry Draft in exchange for Erik Rasmussen on July 24, 2002. He was originally selected by Toronto in the 4th-round (84th overall) of the 1997 Entry Draft, after playing with Owen Sound of the Ontario Hockey League.
