News: The Buffalo Sabres have re-signed forward Luke Adam to a one-year, two-way contract, which provides them the option to have him play in the minors.
Impact: Adam was a restricted free agent after being tendered a contract offer by the team last month. He was selected in the second round of the 2008 draft, and has played parts of four seasons with the Sabres. Adam has 15 goals and 11 assists for 26 points in 87 NHL games.

News: Adam, who was given a qualifying offer by Buffalo in June, re-signed Sunday on a one-year contract.
Impact: A second-round pick in a pretty loaded 2008 draft class, Adam has been one of the Sabres' most perplexing prospects. The 24-year-old can be a feared power forward when he is performing well, but his inconsistency is maddening. Adam had a good season for the Amerks, but did little in 12 games with the Sabres (one goal, 16 shots). The Sabres are going to give him another year to prove himself, and on a team loaded with prospects, a poor performance could mean a change of scenery.

News: The Buffalo Sabres signed Benoit to a one-year contract Wednesday.
Impact: Benoit spent last season with the Colorado Avalanche, and had a career-best 28 points (seven goals, 21 assists) in 79 games. He previously spent parts of two seasons with the Ottawa Senators. Overall, he has 10 goals and 29 assists for 39 points in 120 career NHL games.

News: Hackett suffered a season-ending ACL in the second-to-last game of the regular season last year and will not be able to return until Christmas, The Buffalo News reports.
Impact: It's been less than two months since Hackett's surgery to repair a torn ACL, so the Christmas return date is only a rough estimate for now. With Nathan Lieuwen and Andrey Makarov already vying for the starting job at AHL Rochester, there's no hurry for Hackett to return, but if he can't play, he can't convince the Sabres to keep him around long-term. The Sabres qualified Hackett in June, which means the organization is willing to be patient and give him a fair shake. The 24-year-old has 162 AHL appearances under his belt, but has managed to appear in just 21 NHL games.

News: The Sabres re-signed center Tyler Ennis on Thursday to a five-year contract worth about $23 million, addressing one of the final pieces of their offseason rebuilding plan.
Impact: Ennis was a restricted free agent after the Sabres retained his rights by tendering him an offer last month. Ennis is a speedy, playmaking forward who led the Sabres with a career-best 21 goals and added 22 assists in 80 games last season.

News: The Buffalo Sabres have re-signed Ruhwedel to a two-year contract. The defenseman was a restricted free agent after the Sabres retained his rights by making him a qualifying offer last month. The team announced the signing on Wednesday.
Impact: Ruhwedel split last season playing for the Sabres and their American Hockey League affiliate in Rochester. Overall, he has one assist in 28 NHL games, and four goals and 24 assists in 47 AHL games. The Sabres signed the University of Massachusetts Lowell product in April 2013 after Ruhwedel completed his college career. He's shown signs of being a dependable two-way defenseman and has an opportunity to make the Sabres' lineup this season.
