Sabres sign Lalime

LEWISTON -- Ryan Miller is getting a familiar face as his backup next season. The Sabres have agreed to a one-year deal with Patrick Lalime, who was the No. 2 goaltender the past two seasons.

Lalime, who turned 36 today, went 4-8-2 with the Sabres last season with a 2.81 goals-against average and .905 save percentage. The 12-year veteran has a record of 200-169-48 and a 2.57 GAA with Pittsburgh, Ottawa, St. Louis, Chicago and Buffalo. He is 9-21-5 during his stay with the Sabres.

Lalime's deal will pay him $600,000 for one year.

The Sabres had been weighing whether to sign a veteran backup or hand the backup duties to rookie Jhonas Enroth, who has spent the past two seasons in Portland of the American Hockey League.

More to come -- and here it is.
