Adam Wilcox signs one-year deal with Americans

Adam Wilcox is staying in the Buffalo Sabres' organization after signing a one-year, American Hockey League contract with the Rochester Americans on Tuesday.

Wilcox split goaltending duties in Rochester with Linus Ullmark last season, posting a 12-7-2 record, 2.79 goals against average and a .903 save percentage in 29 games. He made his NHL debut with the Sabres, his favorite team growing up, in last season's finale against the Florida Panthers. He made 14 saves and didn't give up a goal in 40 minutes of action.

Ullmark has a chance to stick on the Sabres' roster this season with the likely departures of Robin Lehner and Chad Johnson, opening up a starting opportunity for Wilcox with the Americans.

The former Minnesota Golden Gopher has played in 105 career AHL games, posting a 46-34-18 record, 2.87 goals against average and a .901 save percentage. He has been in the organization since last July, when he signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Sabres.
