The Buffalo Sabres have agreed to terms with defenseman Mattias Samuelsson on a three-year, entry-level contract.
The Sabres selected Samuelsson, 20, in the second round of the 2018 NHL Draft (32nd overall). He recently completed his sophomore season at Western Michigan, where he tallied 14 points (2+12) in 30 games and served as an alternate captain.
"We are very pleased with Mattias' growth both at Western Michigan and on the international stage," Sabres general manager Jason Botterill said. "He possesses a unique combination of size, speed and skill, and we look forward to working with him on his next steps as a pro."
