Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

The Buffalo Sabres signed free-agent forward Kyle Okposo to a seven-year contract, the club announced Friday. The deal is worth $42 million, according to multiple reports.

Okposo will bolster an already supremely talented Sabres top six, but should also provide a solid veteran presence and man the power play.

The deal was reported to be heavily front-loaded, and John Vogl of Buffalo News tweeted the specifics later Friday:

At 28, Okposo is one of the top goal-scoring wingers in the league, and has registered more than 50 points in each of the past three seasons.
