NHL News: Sabres, Canadiens Protocol, Pavelski, Batherson and BizNasty
Sabres sign a goaltender
Buffalo Sabres: The Sabres have signed goaltender Michael Houser to a one-year, $750,000 contract.
Canadiens claim Pitlick
Elliotte Friedman: The Montreal Canadiens claimed Rem Pitlick off waivers from the Minnesota Wild.
Rem Pitlick, waived by MIN, is a good case study in sample sizes – he’s barely played this year but is producing at an exceptional rate because of a 46.2%(!!) shooting percentage. Might be an okay depth pickup but don’t be fooled by the 11 points in 20 games. #MNWild pic.twitter.com/AgrT7Dm9C9
