The Buffalo Sabres have signed defenseman Jeremy Davies to a one-year two-way contract extension. Buffalo announced the extension this afternoon that will keep the 26-year-old in the Sabres organization through the 2023-24 season and come in with a cap hit of $775K at the NHL level.
The Sabres seventh-round pick in 2016 draft has found a home with the Rochester Americans where it is likely he will spend the foreseeable future after putting up 11 goals and 12 assists in 66 AHL games this past season. Davies returned to the Sabres organization last summer signing as a free agent after spending three years in the Nashville Predators organization.
Davies does have some experience in the NHL having played 23 games across three separate seasons split between the Predators and Sabres. He has three career assists during his time in the NHL and has averaged just a shade over 14 minutes of ice time per game.
Davies was never a highly touted prospect however he did have a solid NCAA career with Northeastern where he had 22 career goals and 72 career assists in 111 college games across three seasons. Early in his career the rearguard was even included in a trade by the New Jersey Devils as part of a package that was used to acquire defenseman P.K. Subban from Nashville.
