Free Agent

The Sabres have signed Benoit Pouliot for one-year at $1.15M.

Pouliot had 33 goals and 37 assists (70 points) in 113 games in his first two seasons in Edmonton, but struggled a year ago leading to a buyout. The 30-year-old winger goes from being overpaid to potentially one of the best value contracts in 2017-18 free agency. Pouliot will likely play on the second or third line behind Evander Kane and is capable of posting a 20-20 season if he can stay healthy.

The Oilers have placed Benoit Pouliot on unconditional waivers for the purpose of a buyout.

After posting 34 and 36 points during injury riddled seasons in his first two years in Edmonton, Pouliot struggled mightily in 2016-17, recording just eight goals and six assists (14 points) in 67 games. Pouliot was entering the fourth year of a five-year contract that carried a $4.0M cap-hit. His buyout will save the Oilers $2.66M against the cap this season.
