Sekera's deal for four seasons

Sabres defenseman Andrej Sekera's new contract with the team covers four years and is worth $11 million. The contract is front-loaded, as the 25-year-old Slovakian defenseman will receive a $3 million signing bonus this year.

"I'm really happy everything came together," Sekera said by phone from his offseason home in Slovakia. "When you see the team, how it’s built, and what changes were made and you see the ownership working and doing everything to help you be a winner, I’m pretty sure every single guy on the team is very excited about next season."

Sekera scored three goals in 76 games last season while posting career highs in assists (26), points (29) and plus-minus (+11). But he played in only two games in the playoffs due to an upper-body injury.

"I want to build on the last season that I had. I want to become a better player, a complete player," he said.
