SABRES AGREE TO TERMS WITH ELLIS ON TWO-YEAR DEAL

Buffalo Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier today announced that the team has agreed to terms with forward Matt Ellis on a two-year, two-way contract.

Ellis (6’0”, 212 lbs., 8/31/81), an eight-year NHL veteran, played in his fifth season with the Sabres in 2012-13. He appeared in six games with Buffalo before lacing up for the Rochester Americans (AHL), where he played in 32 games and tallied 12 points (7+5). Through his eight NHL seasons, Ellis has amassed 41 points (16+25) and 81 penalty minutes through 267 games.

A native of Welland, Ont., Ellis joined Buffalo on Oct. 1, 2008, when he was claimed off waivers from Los Angeles. He was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by Detroit on May 10, 2002 after playing junior hockey with the St. Michael’s Majors.
