Sabres' Sulzer heading back to Germany on five-year deal

By John Vogl

Alexander Sulzer is heading home.

Sulzer, who played in Buffalo during the last three seasons, has signed a five-year contract with the Cologne Sharks in Germany, the club announced on its website. The German-born defenseman was set to be an unrestricted free agent this summer after finishing a one-year, $725,000 deal.

Sulzer played just 25 games for the Sabres this season as the arrival of prospects and a concussion limited his playing time. The 29-year-old had two assists and a minus-3 rating.

Sulzer arrived in Buffalo in February 2012 as part of the trade that brought Cody Hodgson from Vancouver. Sulzer totaled 57 games in Buffalo and recorded six goals and eight assists.
