Sam Reinhart signed a one-year, $5.2 million contract with the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday.
The 24-year-old forward was a restricted free agent who had an arbitration hearing scheduled Tuesday. He scored 50 points (22 goals, 28 assists) in 69 games last season.
The No. 2 pick in the 2014 NHL Draft, Reinhart has scored 255 points (109 goals, 146 assists) in 400 regular-season games. He has ranked among Buffalo’s top three point-scorers every season since 2015-16, joining Rick Martin, Dave Andreychuk and Jack Eichel as one of four Sabres players to do so in each of his first five full NHL seasons.
