Here is where we’ll keep track of today’s minor transactions:
- The Sabres announced the re-signings of center Daniel Catenacci and goaltender Jason Kasdorf to two-way contracts. Financial terms of Catenacci’s deal were not disclosed while Kasdorf receives a two year pact with a cap hit of $612K according to General Fanager. Catenacci played in 11 games with Buffalo last season, being held pointless while he added 12 goals and 12 assists in 50 AHL games. Kasdorf made one NHL start late last year after being signed out of R.P.I., allowing four goals on 30 shots. Both players are likely bound for AHL Rochester in 2016-17.
