The most valuable player of this year's NCAA tournament, Nathan Gerbe, is forgoing his senior season to sign with the Buffalo Sabres. It's not surprising to see him sign, given that he was the most electric player in the NCAA last year, and the folks in Buffalo were hoping he would sign.
Buffalo has now signed Gerbe and Denver defenseman Chris Butler. The Sabres have also expressed interest in signing Michigan State forward Tim Kennedy.
Also, Boston University has let go of goalie Brett Bennett, who has struggled in his first two seasons at BU.
