Buffalo Sabres prospect forward Colin Jacobs has signed an amateur tryout contract with the team's American Hockey League affiliate in Rochester.
From Coppell, Texas, Jacobs was the Sabres' fourth-round pick in the 2011 NHL draft. He was eligible to be signed by Rochester once his junior career ended last weekend, when Prince George failed to qualify for the Western Hockey League playoffs.
Listed at 6-foot-2 and 207 pounds, Jacobs was named Prince George's player of the year after leading the Cougars with 53 points (25 goals, 28 assists) in 66 games. Overall, he had 44 goals, 45 assists and 234 penalty minutes in 186 career games.
Rochester announced the signing on its website Tuesday.

You may recall Buffalo Sabres noted dirty play guy Patrick Kaleta got suspended for five games for nearly breaking Mike Richards' neck against the boards. Upon his return from suspension, interim Sabres coach Ron Rolston benched Kaleta, as an extension of his punishment, presumably to send a point. I guess it kind of worked, because Kaleta was upset. Not necessarily remorseful...

Another day, and yet another headline news story in Pegulaville.
The Sabres were off on Monday, and they spend the day away from the rink in Montreal.
Ryan Miller offered a mea culpa to his teammate Pat Kaleta for the postgame comments that Miller made about Kaleta directly following the galling loss in Washington on Sunday night.
So, this is how bad things have gotten for Tyler Myers: Once considered an untouchable in the Sabres organization, it's now gotten to the point where writers are lamenting that his contract has become an albatross for Darcy Regier.

He didn't name names, but Nick Kypreos said today that, despite what is considered to be a weak goaltending market, there would be plenty of interest in Ryan Miller if the Sabres wanted to move him. Continue reading "Kypreos: 6 Teams Would Love To Have Miller For Stretch Run"
Steve Ott's second goal of the game at 2:16 of overtime lifted the Buffalo Sabres to a 3-2 victory over the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday.
P.K. Subban was off after his stick clipped Mark Pysyk and, with two seconds left in the man advantage, Ott was at the doorstep to shovel in a rebound and give Buffalo its second win in eight games.
Ott and Tyler Ennis scored in the opening...
Playing 7on7 football does not give a runningback much of a chance to show his skills, but Detroit Cass Tech's Mike Weber is definitely a prospect of note for 2015. He was in action at last weekend's New Level Athletics 7on7 in Youngstown.
Thomas Vanek isn't the only Sabre actively nursing an injury.
D-man, Reggie Sekera, was injured in the Ottawa game on Saturday. He'll likely be sitting out his third game in row when the Leafs blow into First Niagara Center on Thursday night.
Sekera's replacement, Mark Pysyk, has been a real breath of fresh air as it relates to the calmness and and patience that...
