  • Tobias Rieder: Released from tryout

    Rieder was released from his professional tryout with the Ducks on Wednesday.

    Rieder signed the PTO deal in September, but he didn't secure a contract with the Ducks. The 28-year-old is now a free agent. He could latch on with another team looking to bolster its bottom-six depth, as he's played at least 44 games in each of his seven NHL seasons. The German is also regarded as a solid defensive winger.

  • Sabres' Tobias Rieder: Pots goal in win

    Rieder lit the lamp in Tuesday's victory over the Rangers.

    It was Rieder's second goal as a Sabre and broke a five-game point drought. His ice time has been steadily increasing from opening night's 11:36 to Tuesday's 15:47. He's playing on Buffalo's third line, but he likely only has value in deeper leagues.

  • Sabres' Tobias Rieder: Headed east to Buffalo

    Rieder agreed to a one-year, $700,000 deal with the Sabres on Friday, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo Newsreports.

    Rieder has spent his entire career (six seasons) in the Western Conference with Arizona, Los Angeles, Edmonton and Calgary. He hasn't been able to reprise the double-digit goals he put up in his first four NHL campaigns -- posting a goose egg in 2018-19 with the Oilers and just four goals in 55 games last year in Calgary -- so the Sabres are undoubtedly hoping he can rediscover his scoring touch in a royal blue, gold and white sweater. At the league-minimum salary, the risk is low for the Sabres.
