The Buffalo Sabres re-signed defenseman Chris Ruhwedel on Thursday, the Associated Press reports.

Ruhwedel, 24, was a restricted free agent and agreed to a two-year contract to stay with Buffalo. During his 2013-14 rookie season, he had one assist for the Sabres while also spending time in the AHL.

Yesterday, the Sabres reportedly came to terms with forward Tyler Ennis on a five-year extension worth $23 million.

Buffalo finished in last place in the Eastern Conference at 21-51-10 last season.
