TROPP RE-SIGNS FOR ONE YEAR
Corey Tropp

Buffalo Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier today announced that the Sabres have agreed to terms on a one-year contract with forward Corey Tropp.

Tropp (6'0", 185 lbs., 7/25/89) recorded four points (2+2) in just six games with the Rochester Americans (AHL) in the 2012-13 season after sustaining an injury in the Amerks’ season-opener that sidelined him for 72 games. Tropp scored twice on two shots in Rochester's first game on October 12 against Syracuse, but was forced to leave the contest with a knee injury. The 24-year-old winger returned to play five games at the end of the season, collecting a pair of assists.

In three AHL seasons, Tropp has appeared in 109 games, totaling 66 points (21+45) and 166 penalty minutes. In 2011-12, Tropp was recalled to the Sabres five times, registering eight points (3+5) and 20 penalty minutes in 34 NHL games. Tropp played the final 21 games with Buffalo that season, and scored his first career game-winning goal in a 7-3 victory in Tampa on March 19.

A native of Grosse Point Woods, Michigan, Tropp was selected by the Sabres in the third round (89th overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.
