Former Buffalo Sabres Forward Signs Overseas

Earlier this week, Riley Sheahan mutually terminated his contract with the Buffalo Sabres. Now, the veteran forward is officially heading to Switzerland, as he has inked a one-year deal with EHC Biel-Bienne.

Sheahan played in two games for Buffalo this season, where he had zero points and a minus-2 rating. He primarily was with the Rochester Americans, however. In six games with the AHL squad, he had three assists and a plus-3 rating. Yet, after a recent demotion back down to the AHL, he decided to move on from the Sabres instead of staying in the minors.

This overseas signing could mark the end of Sheahan's NHL career, but we will have to wait and see if he gets interest next offseason. In 637 career NHL games, the 2010 first-round pick has 74 goals, 120 assists, and 194 points.
