Sabres sign Foligno

The Buffalo Sabres have signed forward Marcus Foligno to a three-year, entry-level contract.

UPDATE: The contract is potentially worth $2.48 million. He is set to earn an NHL salary of $790,000 for each of the first two years of the deal and $900,000 for the third.

Foligno, the son of former Sabre Mike Foligno, was a fourth-round selection by Buffalo in the 2009 draft. He was chosen behind Zack Kassian and Brayden McNabb, both of whom have already signed their entry-level deals.

Foligno played four seasons for the Sudbury Wolves of the Ontario Hockey League. He had a breakout season this year, scoring 23 goals and 59 points in 47 games and making the Canadian World Junior team that played in HSBC Arena just after Christmas.
