The Sabres have added three more pieces for Rochester minutes after announcing the signing of defenseman Matt Tennyson, landing forwards Seth Griffith, Kevin Porter and Kyle Criscuolo.
Griffith was dominant offensively for the Toronto Marlies the past two seasons. In 2015-’16 he led the AHL in assists with 53 and was second in the league with 77 points. Last season he totaled 10 goals and 34 assists in 38 games, leading the Marlies in points per game. He has 202 points in 203 career AHL games.
He’s also played 58 games in the NHL between the Bruins, Panthers and Maple Leafs, scoring 6 goals and 10 assists. He signed a one-year contract worth $650k.
Porter is a veteran who is familiar with the organization. He played 43 games with the Sabres over two seasons, notching 10 points in a Buffalo uniform. He has 58 points in 249 career NHL games.
Porter led the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins with 33 assists and added six more in in five playoff games last year.
Criscuolo scored 17 goals and 41 points in his rookie season with the Calder Cup Champion Grand Rapids Griffins. The Harvard grad earned nine points in the Griffins’ 19-game playoff run.
Porter and Criscuolo both signed two-year deals.
UPDATE: The Rochester signings keep coming fast and furious. The Sabres have signed goalie Adam Wilcox to a one-year deal. He played 47 games between the Syracuse Crunch and Springfield Falcons last season, posting a 25-13-7 record, .906 save percentage and a 2.63 goals-against average.
