SABRES INK PERSSON TO THREE-YEAR DEAL
Buffalo Sabres GM Darcy Regier announced today the Sabres have agreed to terms on a three-year entry-level contract with defenseman Dennis Persson, Buffalo’s first-round choice (24th overall) in the 2006 Entry Draft.

Persson (6/2/1988, 6’1”, 181 lbs.) split last season between Djurgarden of the Swedish Elite League, and Nykoping of the Swedish second tier league. Persson recorded one assist and 6 PIMs in 21 games with Djurgarden, and added four points (1+3) and 14 PIMs with Nykoping.

For his career Persson has one point in 30 Elite League games with Djurgarden, along with 14 points (5+9) in 72 second tier league games with Nykoping, Vasteras and Almtuna.

Persson represented Sweden at the 2006 World Junior Championships, and was considered the team’s most consistent defenseman with six points (1+5) in five games.
