LEWISTON -- The Sabres' prospects are on the ice for the third straight day at Niagara University, while the organization remains busy off the ice. The Sabres have announced one-year deals with three players, including goaltender Drew MacIntyre and Rochester-area native Derek Whitmore.
MacIntyre, 28, led Montreal's AHL team in Hamilton to Game Seven of the Western Conference finals last season. He went 11-9 with a 1.95 goals-against average in the playoffs after posting regular-season numbers of 24-11-3 with a 2.37 GAA. He could compete with Jhonas Enroth for the backup job in Buffalo but more likely will split time with David Leggio in Rochester.
Whitmore is back in the Sabres' organization after recording 27 goals and 20 assists in Portland. The former Amerk returns to his hometown following the Sabres' affiliation switch.
Colin Stuart, who played three games with Buffalo last season, had 16 goals and 28 assists with Portland.
