The Sabres brought in John Scott last season to make them a tougher team. They liked what they saw because they're keeping him around next season, too.
The Sabres have re-signed the 6-foot-8, 270-pounder to a one-year deal worth $750,000. He was set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.
The 30-year-old is getting a decent raise. He made $600,000 last season and $525,000 in 2011-12.
Scott dressed in 34 of the Sabres' 48 games. He had 69 penalty minutes, including seven fighting majors, and didn't record a point.
