Report: Buffalo Sabres "Won't Re-Sign" Sniper Forward

The Buffalo Sabres have made a significant decision regarding their talented winger, Victor Olofsson, who is entering the final year of his contract.

Despite his impressive performance last season, where he achieved a career-high of 28 goals, the team has chosen not to pursue a contract extension with him at this time.

This move suggests that Olofsson's time with the Sabres may be coming to an end, and he could be exploring other options as an unrestricted free agent after the upcoming season.

The 28-year-old has spent all five of his NHL seasons with the Sabres, amassing 83 goals and 167 points over 263 games played with the club.

The decision not to extend Olofsson's contract indicates a clear direction for the team as they look to explore different options and potentially build for the future with other wing prospects.

Olofsson's pending unrestricted free agency could also create potential trade rumors and interest from other teams, adding further intrigue to the situation.

As Olofsson heads into the final year of his current contract, both he and the Sabres will undoubtedly be motivated to make the most of the upcoming season.

Olofsson will aim to further showcase his skills and potential, potentially attracting interest from other teams when he becomes an unrestricted free agent.

Meanwhile, the Sabres will carefully assess their roster dynamics and weigh their options to build a competitive team with a focus on developing young talent on entry-level contracts. Photo Credit: Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports
