This just in, longtime NHL goalie James Reimer has signed a one year contract with the Buffalo Sabres.

Check it out:

The 36 year old Reimer had a solid season with the Detroit Red Wings last season and has parlayed that into a $1 million deal with the Sabres. It's expected that he'll help the team's young tandem of Ukko Pekka Luukkonen and Devon Levi.

From the Sabres' press release announcement:

The Buffalo Sabres have signed goaltender James Reimer to a one-year contract worth $1 million, the team announced Monday.

Reimer, 36, went 11-8-2 with a .904 save percentage and two shutouts in 25 games last season with the Detroit Red Wings.

The 14-year veteran has a .910 save percentage in 501 career regular-season games and is tied for 10th among active goaltenders with 215 wins. He has had a save percentage of .900 or higher in all but one seasons.
