Mittelstadt penned a three-year, $7.5 million contract with Buffalo on Thursday.

Mittelstadt bounced back from a disappointing 2019-20 campaign with 10 goals and 12 helpers in 41 games last year. The 21-year-old center logged a career-high 15:53 of ice time and should continue to play a top-six role heading into the upcoming season. With a full 82-game campaign, Mittelstadt could be in line to set new personal bests in goals and assists in 2021-22 and challenge for the 40-50 point range.
