Catenacci signed a one-year, two-way contract extension with the Sabres on Friday, the Olean Times Herald reports. The deal is worth $575,000 at the NHL level and $85,000 in the AHL. Catenacci lacks size, but the guy can fly down the ice and sees the ice well. He failed to impress in 11 games with the Sabres last season, having gone pointless in 11 games with a minus-2 rating, though he did tack on 24 points (12 goals, 12 assists) in 50 matches with AHL Rochester. The 23-year-old seemingly needs more polish, and the two-way aspect of his contract will allow him to bide his time in the minors at a lower cost to the Sabres organization.
The Sabres have assigned Catenacci to AHL Rochester. Catenacci, who saw 8:56 worth of ice time in Saturday's loss to the Leafs, has yet to record a point in 11 games with the Sabres this season.The 23-year-old forward was up with the big club for Saturday's contest with Jack Eichel out with the flu.
Catenacci was called up from AHL Rochester on Saturday. Catenacci will get another opportunity to notch his first NHL goal when he faces off with Toronto. The 23-year-old has been fantastic in the minors this season, where he has racked up 54 points in 59 contests. The winger was brought in to replace Jack Eichel (illness) who is out with the flu.
Catenacci was assigned to AHL Rochester on Wednesday. Catenacci picked up no points in his 10 games with the Sabres, posting a minus-2 to go with it. Catenacci isn't a big point scorer, but does have 20 points in 41 AHL games. The former third-round pick is likely a bottom-six option sliding between the NHL and AHL for the foreseeable future.
Catenacci was called up from the minors Tuesday, reports John Vogl of The Buffalo News. Catenacci was re-assigned to the AHL following a concussion suffered against Philadelphia, and this call-up is a sign that the feisty winger is now 100 percent and ready for a second audition. After a stellar major junior career Catenacci has gradually found his footing in the pros. He will be a game-time decision Tuesday against the Oilers when they visit Buffalo.
