Buffalo Sabres

NHL CapHit: $800,000 Puckpedia Profile

The Sabres have signed Curtis Lazar to a two-year, $1.6 million ($800k AAV) contract extension.

Lazar split his 2020 season between the AHL and NHL, totalling 10 points (5G / 5A) in 38 games with the Sabres. Lazar has never lived up to the hype of being a top-20 draft pick but he seems to have settled in in the Sabres' bottom-6. Expect him to centre the third or fourth line behind Jack Eichel and Eric Staal in 2021.

Lazar will be a healthy scratch in the Flames season opener.

Lazar, who picked up three points in four games after being acquired by the Flames last season was beat out by Tanner Glass and Garnet Hathaway for the last few spots in the Flames’ opening night roster. With Jaromir Jagr also coming to town soon, Lazar might have a difficult time working his way into the lineup.

The Flames have acquired Curtis Lazar and Mike Kostka from the Senators for Jyrki Jokipakka and a 2nd Round Pick.

Lazar has had a very difficult year that started with mono at the beginning of the season and never seemed to get it back on track. Lazar had three goals and one assist in 13 games with Binghamton (AHL) and one one assist in 33 games with the Senators. Following a few additions up front, Lazar would have been sitting or sent back down, so he gets a much-needed change of scenery as the Salmon Arm, British Columbia native heads to Alberta.
