The Buffalo Sabres and defenseman Alexander Sulzer have agreed to a new one-year deal, according to a report by CapGeek.com. The team has since confirmed the news.

The terms of the deal include a one-year, one-way, $725,000 contract, according to CapGeek.com.

The Sabres picked up Sulzer at the trade deadline as part of the Cody Hodgson/Zack Kassian trade. Sulzer had 3 goals and 5 assists in just 15 games with the Sabres, which was the most he'd had with any team previously in his NHL career. Previously, Sulzer had stints with the Vancouver Canucks, Nashville Predators, and the Florida Panthers. He seemed to fit in with the Sabres during his limited time with the team.

With the re-signing of Sulzer, the Buffalo Sabres now have seven defensemen under one-way contracts.
