The Buffalo Sabres announced Sunday the team signed forward Luke Adam to a one-year, two-way contract.
Adam (age 24, 6'2", 206 lbs.) has played in parts of four seasons with the Sabres since being drafted by Buffalo in the second round (44th overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. In 2013-14, Adam led the Sabres' American Hockey League affiliate, the Rochester Americans, in goals and ranked second on the team in overall points with 49 (29 goals, 20 assists) in 59 games played. His 29 goals tied his career high, which he set in 2010-11 with the Portland Pirates (AHL), and was tied for eighth-most goals in the AHL. In February, Adam played in his second AHL All-Star game.
Last season, Adam was called up to play with the Sabres twice. In 87 NHL games with the Sabres, Adam has recorded 26 points (15/11) through 87 games played.
The St. John's, Newfoundland, native has amassed 161 points (77/84) in 210 AHL games with the Americans and the Pirates. He was awarded the 2010-11 Dudley "Red" Garrett Memorial Award as the AHL's outstanding rookie, and also earned a spot on the 2010-11 AHL All-Rookie Team.
