Sabres' new backup goalie -- Patrick Lalime

The Sabres have signed Patrick Lalime to a two-year, $2 million deal to back up Ryan Miller. Lalime was with Chicago last season behind Nikolai Khabibulin. The 33-year-old went 16-12 with a 2.82 goals-against average and a .897 save percentage.

Fans may remember him from his time with Ottawa in 1999-2003.

"He's excited to be coming to Buffalo," Lalime's agent, Ian Pulver, said by phone. "He's happy to be coming back in the Eastern Conference.

"He's a great personality. He's strong in the dressing room. He understands his role with Ryan Miller and looks to make Buffalo his home."
