Lekkas signed a one-year deal with the Sabres worth $700,000 on Tuesday. With Buffalo's top three goalies ruled out for the remainder of the season, the club opted to sign Lekkas. He'll be the likely backup in the last three games of the season to Michael Houser, who is the confirmed starter Tuesday against the Islanders.
Lekkas signed a professional tryout agreement with the Sabres on Monday. Lekkas had a successful four-year career at the University of Vermont but has spent the last two seasons in the AHL and ECHL. The 25-year-old owns a 4.32 GAA and .863 save percentage in seven games with AHL Rochester this season. He's expected to serve as the backup behind Michael Houser for Monday's tilt with the Islanders, as the Sabres are dealing with several injured goaltenders.
