BUFFALO, N.Y. (July 7, 2013) --- Buffalo Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier today announced that the Sabres have acquired defenseman Henrik Tallinder from the New Jersey Devils in exchange for forward Riley Boychuk.

Tallinder (6'4", 215 lbs., 1/10/79) began his NHL career in Buffalo after the Sabres selected him in the second round of the 1997 NHL Entry Draft, spending parts of eight seasons with the Sabres from 2001-02 to 2009-10. He has spent the last three seasons with the Devils, recording 26 points (6+20) and 66 penalty minutes in 146 games.

"We are excited to have Henrik back in the mix on our blue line," said Regier. "His experience will be invaluable not only in adding more stability to our back end, but also in the development of some of our younger defensemen."

The Stockholm, Sweden native has played in 614 career games in parts of 11 NHL seasons, totaling 134 points (26+108) and 344 penalty minutes, along with a plus-29 rating. Tallinder's 468 games played with the Sabres rank him 11th among all defensemen in franchise history and first among active Sabres.
