If UMass-Lowell D Chad Ruhwedel's contract with BUF gets signed/registered quickly enough the college UFA could be in Sabre lineup today.

In any case, the San Diego, CA, native is going to be a Sabre. Played in USHL before going to UMass-Lowell.

BUFFALO, N.Y. (April 13, 2013) --- Buffalo Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier today announced the Sabres have signed free agent defenseman Chad Ruhwedel to a two-year, entry-level contract.

He ranked fourth among all Hockey East defensemen in scoring while helping the River Hawks win the conference championship and advance to the 2013 Frozen Four. In addition to receiving First-team All-America honors, Ruhwedel was named the 2013 Bob Monahan Defenseman of the Year by the New England Hockey Writers Association and earned 2013 Hockey East All-Conference First Team honors.
