By John Vogl

The Sabres' remain one of the busiest teams on the opening day of free agency, bringing back Matt Moulson for five years and $25 million.

Moulson came to Buffalo in October as part of the deal that sent Thomas Vanek to the New York Islanders. Buffalo sent him to Minnesota at the trade deadline for Torrey Mitchell and two second-round picks.

The Sabres have also brought back forward Cody McCormick for three years at $1.5 million per season.

Moulson gives the Sabres scoring punch on the wing. He had 11 goals and 29 points in 44 games with the Sabres and added six goals and 13 points in 20 games with the Wild and six goals and nine points in 11 games with the Isles. Moulson has topped 30 goals three times.

McCormick spent four seasons in Buffalo before being to sent to Minnesota along with Moulson. He brings grit and competitiveness, qualities the Sabres have been seeking.
