Sabres sign D Rasmus Dahlin to 8-year, $88M extension

The Buffalo Sabres signed star defenseman Rasmus Dahlin to an eight-year contract extension worth $88 million on Monday.

The extension kicks in ahead of the 2024-25 season. Dahlin, 23, will make $7.2 million this season.

Dahlin tied for fifth among NHL defensemen with 73 points (15 goals, 58 assists) last season, the third-highest mark by a blueliner in Sabres history. He led the Sabres in blocked shots and finished second on the team in hits.

Dahlin, 23, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 draft, has 233 points (46 goals, 187 assists) in five seasons with the Sabres.

In addition to Dahlin, the Sabres have also locked up forwards Tage Thompson and Dylan Cozens and defenseman Mattias Samuelsson with long-term deals since the beginning of last season. The team is also eyeing a long-term deal for defenseman Owen Power, its No. 1 overall pick in 2021.
