The Sabres have officially welcomed another Michigan State Spartan to the organization by signing Corey Tropp to a three-year, entry-level contract.
The right winger had a standout year for Michigan State, which developed Ryan Miller and Tim Kennedy for the Sabres. Tropp had 20 goals and 22 assists in 37 games, with nine goals coming on the power play and five recorded as game-winners. The Michigan native was named the Spartans' Most Valuable Player.
Tropp is in Lewiston this week at the Sabres' rookie development camp. He will start next season in Portland of the American Hockey League. The 20-year-old was drafted in the third round in 2007.
