Add another local to the roster: Sabres get Tim Kennedy signed
That Pirat… I mean, Sabres farm club roster sure is shaping up.
The Sabres announced today they have signed Buffalo native Tim Kennedy to an entry-level deal.
“We are thrilled to have a player of Tim’s caliber join the Sabres organization,” said Regier. “After three years at Michigan State, we believe this local product is ready to make the move to the professional level.”
A native of Buffalo, Kennedy (4/30/1986, 5’10”, 180 lbs.) led the Spartans in scoring for the second consecutive season, tying his career best with 43 points (20+23) in 42 games. He led the team in all offensive categories, while scoring nine PPG’s and added five game winners. For his efforts, Kennedy was named a Second-Team All-CCHA selection. Kennedy finished with 105 points (42+63) in 113 games during his three years in East Lansing.
Kennedy was headed into his senior year at Michigan State, and had he finished his career as a Spartan, he would’ve been eligible to become an unrestricted free agent if he didn’t sign with the Sabres. The pressure was on to get it done so that wouldn’t be a problem.
Now it’s irrelevant, another local boy is in the system. Good to see.
