Former Penn State Men’s Hockey Captain Brandon Biro Signs Two-Year Deal With Buffalo Sabres

Brandon Biro is officially staying in Buffalo for another few years.

The former Penn State men’s hockey captain and restricted free agent signed a two-year extension with the Sabres, the team announced Friday. The contract is worth about $762,500 per year.

After joining the Sabres organization as an undrafted free agent in 2020, Biro is coming off his most productive season as a professional, as he tallied 12 goals and 29 assists for 41 points in just 48 games played with the Rochester Americans, the AHL affiliate of the Sabres. His promising play was noticed at the NHL level, and he was called up to the Sabres to make his NHL debut in a February loss to the Montreal Canadiens.

His NHL stint only lasted one game, though, as he returned to the AHL and suffered a lower-body injury that kept him sidelined for four weeks. The forward returned in mid-April and registered five points in his last eight games of the season.
