Jason Kasdorf made his NHL debut for the Buffalo Sabres in April. On Sunday, he signed on for a reported two more years with the Sabres.

As per General Fanager, it’s a two-year, two-way deal with an average annual value of $612,500 at the NHL level.

The Sabres originally acquired Kasdorf from the Winnipeg Jets as part of the Evander Kane trade. He then signed his entry-level contract after completing his fourth and final year at R.P.I., where he had a .931 save percentage as a senior.

His lone NHL game last season resulted in a loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets. He allowed four goals on 30 shots.

“There’s no reason he can’t be an elite pro goalie and there’s no reason he can’t play in the National Hockey League down the road,” R.P.I. coach Seth Appert once told the Times Herald.

The Sabres also signed prospect forward Daniel Catenacci to a two-way contract.

Catenacci, 23, played in 11 games for Buffalo last season. He didn’t register a point. In 50 games with the Rochester Americans of the AHL last season, he scored 12 goals and 24 points.
