The Sabres have brought another 2012 draft pick into the organization, signing seventh-round selection Brady Austin to a three-year, entry-level deal. The 6-foot-3, 234-pound defenseman played for Erie, Belleville and London in the Ontario Hockey League.
Austin set career highs with nine goals, 24 assists and 33 points in 67 games this season. His plus-51 rating was sixth in the OHL. Contract terms were not disclosed.
The Sabres have until June 1 to sign their 2012 picks who played junior hockey. Fifth-round pick Logan Nelson is the only one who remains.
