SABRES RE-SIGN PERSSON AND TURNBULL
Dennis Persson
Buffalo Sabres GM Darcy Regier announced today that defenseman Dennis Persson and forward Travis Turnbull have each agreed to a one-year contract.

Persson (6'1", 192 lbs., 6/2/1988) was Buffalo's first-round pick (24th overall) in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. He spent the last two full seasons with the Portland Pirates (AHL) after ending the 2008-09 campaign with the team. Persson did not see any ice time during three recalls to Buffalo in April 2011.

The 23-year-old native of Nykoping, Sweden has amassed 26 points (5+21) in 132 career AHL games. He posted 17 points (4+13) in 64 regular season games with the Pirates last year and added four assists in 11 playoff games, including a three-assist effort in the Atlantic Division Semifinals.

Travis Turnbull
Turnbull (6'0", 193 lbs., 7/7/1986), like Persson, made his AHL debut late in the 2008-09 season and has also spent the last two seasons in Portland. Turnbull missed 59 games with a shoulder injury in 2010-11. He scored nine points (5+4) in 20 total games, including a goal in his first game back from the injury.

The Chesterfield, Missouri native and son of NHL alumnus Perry Turnbull has totaled 27 points (14+13) and 131 penalty minutes in 80 career AHL games.
