Foligno was protected by the Sabres for the expansion draft.

Foligno, who is a restricted free agent and expected to re-sign with the Sabres, finished the season with a career-high 13 goals. It's the second straight year the 25-year-old has scored more than 10 goals and 20 points, and he certainly showed improvement over the course of the season. He missed the final two games due to a knee injury, but he's expected to be healthy by training camp. A physical winger who registered 279 hits, Foligno was a fixture on the Sabres' top three lines, which is where he's expected to play again next season.
