    Sabres sign #2 overall pick Sam Reinhart

    http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=7...d=nhl:topheads

    Forward Sam Reinhart, the second selection in the 2014 NHL Draft, has signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Buffalo Sabres, the team announced Saturday. Financial details were not disclosed.

    "We are very excited to have Sam under contract," Sabres general manager Tim Murray said. "We look forward to watching him develop and become an important part of our organization in the future."

    Reinhart, 18, spent the past four seasons with the Kootenay Ice of the Western Hockey League. In 203 WHL games, he scored 101 goals and 254 points. He served as captain in 2013-14 and was named WHL Player of the Year and Most Sportsmanlike Player of the Year after tying Edmonton Oilers prospect Leon Draisaitl, the No. 3 pick, for fourth in league scoring with 105 points.

    Reinhart, the son of former NHL player Paul Reinhart, was captain for Canada when it won the gold medal at the 2012 Ivan Hlinka Memorial tournament and at the 2013 IIHF Under-18 World Championship.

    The Sabres also announced the signing of forward Jordan Samuels-Thomas to a one-year entry-level contract. Financial details were not disclosed.

    Samuels-Thomas was selected by the Atlanta Thrashers in the seventh round (No. 203) of the 2009 NHL Draft. The Sabres acquired his rights July 9 from the Winnipeg Jets in a trade for a conditional seventh-round pick in the 2015 draft.

    The 24-year-old Connecticut native began his college career with Bowling Green State University before transferring to Quinnipiac University, where he played the past two seasons. In his first season with the Bobcats, Samuels-Thomas led the team with 17 goals and helped Quinnipiac to the NCAA championship game, where they lost to Yale University.

    I am hoping he makes a splash and does not get sent back to juniors. The line I picture will be Reinhart centering Moulsen and Gionta.

    As much as I was dreading last year, I am actually looking forward to seeing this season and the start of the rebuild, not the end of the dismantling.
