Zemgus Girgensons with Sabers for three more years

Buffalo Sabers forward Zemgus Girgensons on Thursday agreed to a three-year contract extension with the team that will earn him an average of $ 2.2 million a year.

TSN reported the news. This is a slight pay rise for Girgensons, who earned $ 1.6 million in the last two campaigns. He was due to become an unrestricted free agent shortly.

The Latvian has been a reliable element at the center of the Sabers’ last two lines for seven seasons. The 26-year-old had 19 points, including 12 goals, in 69 games last season. He only exceeded the 30-point plateau once, in 2014-2015.

Girgensons was the 14e 2012 National Hockey League (NHL) Draft overall pick. He notably represented Buffalo in the 2015 All-Star Game, which was heavily supported by fans in his homeland.
