And one remains.

The Buffalo Sabres agreed to terms Monday with forward C.J. Smith on a one-year, two-way contract, meaning the organization has signed five of its six restricted free agents.

The only one without a deal to this point is Sam Reinhart. General Manager Jason Botterill has said the team and Reinhart's agent are looking to agree on a multiyear deal and Botterill has expressed confidence there should not be an issue.

As for Smith, he played in two NHL games last season with one assist and had 44 points (17 goals and 27 assists) in 57 games with Rochester in the AHL. He also was named Most Valuable Player of the AHL All-Star Challenge.

Smith joined the Sabres organization in March 2017 after playing three years at UMass Lowell with 125 points in 120 games.

The average annual value of Smith's deal is $874,125.

The Sabres' other restricted free agents were Sean Malone, Justin Bailey, Danny O'Regan and Nick Baptiste.
