Report: Sabres re-sign Leggio

The Sabres, who were in need of a veteran goaltender for Rochester, are sticking with a familiar face. Buffalo has agreed to a one-year deal with David Leggio, the Williamsville native who manned the crease for the Sabres' minor-league club the past two seasons, according to the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle.

Leggio, an unrestricted free agent, played 54 games for the Amerks last season as the No. 1 netminder. He went 28-24-2 with a 2.63 goals-against average and .917 save percentage. He also was in the crease 36 times for the Portland Pirates in 2010-11 when they were the Sabres’ affiliate.

The Sabres have first-year pros Connor Knapp and Nathan Lieuwen slated to compete for time with the Amerks. Knapp, a sixth-round pick in 2009, just completed his collegiate career at Miami of Ohio. Lieuwen, a sixth-round pick in 2011, finished his final season with Kootenay of the Western Hockey League.
