Actually it's a two years contract for Sabourin

However I don't know if the contract starts now or next year. I would bet that it starts now but usually that kind of deal isn't called a two years contract, it's rather a ATO (amateur try-out contract) for the remainder of the season and a full year contract for next season.

For this reason, I would be a little reluctant to add Sabourin to the list, however I'll add him to the list of players under contract for 2013-2014 (which I'll start soon).

Another player signed for next season is Dov Grumet-Morris

Some players signed to AHL contracts were involved in trades/loans in the past two days (the AHL trade deadline was wednesday) :

WBS Penguins acquire Nesbitt from Peoria

The Chicago Wolves have received defenseman Brent Regner from the Peoria Rivermen in exchange for future considerations. In addition, the Vancouver Canucks have loaned forward Stefan Schneider to Peoria and the Wolves have loaned forward Nathan Longpre to the Rivermen.
-Regner was traded to Chicago
-Longpre was loaned to Peoria
-Schneider is under contract with Vancouver
