The Buffalo Sabres have signed their first-round pick from the 2012 draft, Mikhail Grigorenko, to a three-year, entry-level contract, the club announced today.

Once considered a potential first overall pick, Grigorenko was selected 12th overall by the Sabres after falling down the draft rankings as the 2011-12 season progressed.

Grigorenko, a center, is expected to challenge for a spot on Buffalo’s 2012-13 roster.
