Buffalo Sabres defenseman Brandon Montour is available for trade, reports Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman.

The 26-year-old has registered three assists in 13 games this season while averaging 20:54 of ice time per contest. His underlying numbers are poor, as he's posted a Corsi for percentage of 47.1 and an expected goals for percentage of 48.6 at five-on-five, according to Natural Stat Trick.

Montour has one year left on his contract carrying a $3.85-million cap hit. He'll be an unrestricted free agent at season's end.

The Sabres acquired the right-handed blue-liner from the Anaheim Ducks in February 2019 in exchange for defenseman Brendan Guhle and a 2019 first-round pick (Brayden Tracey).
