Sabres sign Providence center Schaller, according to Friars teammates

By John Vogl

The Sabres have been looking to add centers during the past year, and it appears they've added another.

The team has signed college free agent Tim Schaller, according to congratulatory tweets sent by several Providence teammates. The 6-foot-2, 210-pounder senior was named Best Defensive Forward in Hockey East Association this season.

Schaller, 22, had eight goals and 23 points in 38 games for the Friars. He won 56 percent of his faceoffs and served as an alternate captain.

Schaller has participated in development camps for the Calgary Flames and Chicago Blackhawks. It's expected he will report to the Rochester Americans for the remainder of this season. The Sabres have not announced the signing.
