Agent: Ehrhoff 'thrilled' to join Sabres

Christian Ehrhoff didn't know a lot about the Sabres. Once his education was complete, he was ready to sign up.

The defenseman has agreed to a long-term deal with the club, with multiple reports saying it is 10 years for $40 million.

"He’s thrilled," Ehrhoff's agent, Rick Curran, told The News by phone. "He was very impressed with the organization and the presentation that they made, obviously. Buffalo wasn’t a club that he had realized would be interested in him. When they did trade for his rights and express an interest, he was intrigued.

"Christian is a very methodical person. He did his due diligence, talked to a lot of people that he knew that were familiar with Buffalo and the Sabres’ organization, and at the end of which he just told me, "Rick, I think it’s a place I’d like to play.'"
