SABRES SIGN BC’S CASEY FITZGERALD TO ENTRY-LEVEL CONTRACT

BUFFALO  -The Buffalo Sabres have announced the team has signed defenseman Casey Fitzgerald to a two-year, entry-level contract with an average annual value of $925,000. Fitzgerald will sign an amateur tryout offer and report to the Rochester Americans of the AHL. The entry-level contract will begin starting with the 2019-20 season.

Fitzgerald (5’11”, 186 lbs.) recently finished his senior season at Boston College (Hockey East). He recorded 82 points (17+65) in 151 career games and served as captain during the past two (2017-18 and 2018-19) seasons.

During his college career at BC, Fitzgerald earned several Hockey East accolades, highlighted by his Best Defensive Defenseman and Second All-Star Team honors as a junior in 2017-18. As a senior, he was selected as a Hockey East All-Star Honorable Mention. A native of North Reading, Mass., he also won a gold medal with the United States at the 2017 IIHF World Junior Championship.

The Sabres selected Fitzgerald in the third round (86th overall) of the 2016 NHL Draft after a 27-point freshman season at Boston College that earned him Hockey East All-Rookie honors.
