Sabres re-sign goalie Linus Ullmark to two-year contract

Linus Ullmark showed he could handle a heavy workload. The Sabres have rewarded him.

Buffalo has signed the goaltender to a two-year deal worth $1.5 million. The 23-year-old was set to be a restricted free agent July 1.

Linus has worked hard both on and off the ice, and his performance at both the NHL and AHL levels has reflected those efforts, Sabres General Manager Jason Botterill said Tuesday. He made great strides during his second season in North America, and we are eager to see him continue his development.

Las Vegas could have a say in whether the Sabres watch Ullmark's development. Teams can protect only one goaltender in the upcoming expansion draft, and Buffalo also has No. 1 netminder Robin Lehner. The protection lists must be submitted Saturday, and the results of the expansion draft will be announced June 21.

Teams can work out deals with the Golden Knights to entice them not to select certain players. Former Buffalo GM Tim Murray had the framework of a deal in place with Vegas GM George McPhee, and Botterill has also had talks with McPhee.
