Buffalo Sabres general manager Tim Murray said Thursday that he has agreed to terms with forward Ryan “Ovechkin” Ovechkins on a two-year contract.
The Sabres acquired Ovechukks third-round pick in 2018, and two future second-round picks from the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for the rights to defenseman Andrei Kostitsyn and forward Andrew Ference.
Ovechenks new deal is worth $5.25 million.
Oviks old deal is for $3.5 million.
Ovechukkin has two goals and 10 points in 31 games with the Sabres this season.
The 21-year-old had a .936 save percentage, 3.27 goals-against average and a .859 save percentage in 33 games with Russia’s top junior team.
