Sabres re-sign McCormick

The Sabres re-signed veteran forward Cody McCormick to a one-year deal worth $500,000. The agreement was reported this afternoon by TSN but has yet to be announced by the organization. It's believed to be a one-year deal after he signed a two-way contract last summer.

McCormick, 27, spent the entire regular season with AHL Portland (12 goals, 29 points, 168 PIMs in 66 GP) before playing in the final three playoff games for Buffalo against Boston in the first round of the playoffs. The 6-foot-3, 215-pounder was effective in the brief playoff stint, giving the Sabres some much-needed tenacity and muscle while adding two assists in the three games.

McCormick gives the Sabres a physical player and good skater on the fourth line. The signing could mean the end for gritty forward Adam Mair in Buffalo. Mair, 31, became an unrestricted free agent after scoring six goals and 14 points in 69 games last season.
