BUFFALO, NY (July 6, 2012) – Buffalo Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier today announced the team has signed forwards Kevin Porter and Mark Mancari and resigned goaltender David Leggio. All three contracts are for one year.

Porter (6’0”, 190 lbs., 3/12/1986), originally drafted by the Phoenix Coyotes in the fourth round (119th overall) of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, has spent the previous three seasons with the Colorado Avalanche. Prior to his trade to the Avalanche in 2009-10, Porter played with Phoenix for two seasons, spending time with their AHL affiliate, the San Antonio Rampage, as well. Through 163 NHL games played, Porter has notched 45 points (25+20) and 48 PIM. The Northville, Mich. native was the recipient of the 2007-08 Hobey Baker award while playing at the University of Michigan.

Mancari (6’3”, 225 lbs., 7/5/1986) returns to the Sabres after a one-year stint with the Vancouver Cancks in 2011-12. During his season in Vancouver, Mancari played in six games with the Canucks and 69 games with their AHL club, the Chicago Wolves. Through his 69 games with the Wolves, Mancari tallied 58 points (30+28) and 40 PIM.

Mark Mancari

Mancari, originally drafted by the Sabres in the seventh round (207th overall) of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, made his debut with the team in 2006-07 and played parts of six seasons with Buffalo and its AHL affiliates, the Rochester Americans and the Portland Pirates. Through 42 NHL games played, the London, Ontario native has recorded 13 points (3+10) and 22 PIM.

Leggio (6’0”, 180 lbs., 7/31/1984), a native of Williamsville, NY, set career-highs in 54 games for Rochester last season, compiling a 28-24-2 record with a 2.63 goals-against average. Leggio led the AHL in saves (1721) and was named the team’s Most Valuable Player.

Leggio joined the Sabres when he was signed by Portland as a free agent in 2010-11, after spending the previous season with TPS Turku in Finland. He has also spent time with the Albany River Rats and the Binghamton Senators of the AHL. Through 92 AHL games, he has earned a 50-38-2 record and a 2.75 goals-against average. The 27-year-old played four years of college hockey with Clarkson University from 2004-2008.
