BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Buffalo Sabres have agreed to a one-year entry level contract with University of Maine forward Brian Flynn.
An undrafted free agent, Flynn just completed a four-year college career in which he finished second on the team—and ninth in the nation—with 48 points (18 goals, 30 assists). Overall, the 6-foot-1, 185-pound player from Lynnfield, Mass., finished with 69 goals and 156 points in 153 career games to rank 11th on Maine's points list.
Flynn's contract doesn't begin until next season, though he'll finish this year with Buffalo's minor-league affiliate, AHL Rochester.
