Fringe Signing (Sep 1)

The Buffalo Sabres re-signed forward Zemgus Girgensons on Thursday afternoon, giving him a 1-year, $1.15 million deal out of restricted free agency.  The 22-year old Latvian didn't have enough points in the 2016 season to qualify for today's pool worthy restricted free agent post, only picking up 7 goals and 18 points in 71 games.

The former All-Star could bounce back in the 2017 season and possibly become pool worthy once again.  My early projections for him have him in the 30-point range and if we fill up the draft order with enough people again this year, he could figure back into the pool as a bit of a sleeper pick.
