The population of Clarence is increasing by a few Pominvilles.
Once-and-future Buffalo Sabres forward Jason Pominville, with his wife, Kim, paid nearly $900,000 for a home on Glenview Drive, off Greiner Road, according to a document filed with the Erie County Clerk's Office.
The sale closed Friday. The colonial-style home has four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms and was built in 2016, according to a listing on Realtor.com. The Pominvilles bought the home from Forbes Homes.
Pominville is moving back to the area because the Sabres reacquired the winger in a trade with the Minnesota Wild two months ago.
The Pominvilles have recently put their home in Edina, Minn., a suburb of Minneapolis, up for sale, according to Erik Gunther, the deputy editor of Realtor.com. The five-bedroom, 3.5-bedroom home built in 2011 sits on Minnehaha Creek, boasts a heated in-ground pool and is listed for $1.8 million.
He originally played with the Sabres from the 2005-06 season until he was dealt to the Wild in 2013.
Pominville is best known from his previous stint with the Sabres for scoring the series-winning goal against the Ottawa Senators in overtime in the second round of the 2006 playoffs.
