The Buffalo Sabres added another goaltender to their organization Monday night, announcing they have signed Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute’s Jason Kasdorf to an entry-level contract.
Kasdorf, 23, went 12-12-5 with a 2.30 goals-against average and .931 save percentage as a senior this year at RPI. Acquired from Winnipeg 13 months ago in the trade that also brought Evander Kane and Zach Bogosian, Kasdorf ranked fourth in the ECAC in save percentage. He was Winnipeg’s sixth-round pick in 2011.
Because of Kasdorf’s age, his entry-level deal is for just the rest of this season and he would then become a restricted free agent.
According to CapFriendly.com, the deal is for a $667,500 cap hit in the NHL and $70,000 in the AHL, plus games-played bonuses.
Kasdorf put up 29 shutout minutes in goal here last July during the team’s development camp scrimmage, played in front of more than 17,000 fans.
