BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – The Buffalo Sabres re-signed forward Nic Deslauriers to a two-year deal Monday.

Deslauriers, one of the prospects acquired in the Brayden McNabb trade, showed some promise in a brief 17-game call-up with Buffalo this season. A power forward at 6-1, 230 pounds, he showed a solid scoring touch at the AHL level this season, with 42 points in 65 games.

“Nick was able to step in and compete in every situation we put him in,” Sabres GM Tim Murray said in a press release Monday. “We’re confident that he will be an important part of our organization going forward.”

The Sabres traded McNabb and a pair of second-round picks to the L.A. Kings at the trade deadline for Deslauriers and University of Minnesota forward Hudson Fasching.
