Buffalo Sabres GM Darcy Regier announced today the Sabres have agreed to terms with unrestricted free agent goaltender Patrick Lalime on a one-year contract. Lalime – who turns 36 today – has spent the past two seasons with the Sabres after signing as a UFA on July 1, 2008.

"If you look at his record, I think maybe he'd like to have a better record, but if you look his save percentage and the way he's played, he's been terrific not only on the ice but off the ice as well," Regier said. "The dressing room, his relationship with his teammates is important."

Lalime (7/7/1974, 6’3”, 189 lbs.) was 4-8-2 for the Sabres last season with a 2.81 GAA and .905 save percentage. On March 27, Lalime became the 66th goaltender in NHL history to record 200 career wins when he backstopped Buffalo to a 7-1 win over Tampa Bay at HSBC Arena.

Lalime has played 12 NHL seasons, compiling a record of 200-169-48 and a 2.57 GAA with Pittsburgh, Ottawa, St. Louis, Chicago and Buffalo. He has also posted 35 career shutouts, including 27 between 2000-04. Lalime was named to the NHL’s All-Rookie Team in 1996-97 with Pittsburgh. During that season he set the NHL record for longest unbeaten streak by a rookie goaltender to start his career by going 14-0-2.

Lalime was originally drafted in the sixth round (156th) by Pittsburgh in the 1993 Entry Draft.
