The Buffalo Sabres are taking care of business in their own crease.

Buffalo signed free-agent goalies Craig Anderson and Aaron Dell to one-year deals worth $750,000, the team announced Wednesday.

Anderson started just two regular-season games with the Washington Capitals last season, but he authored a stellar .929 save percentage in two playoff appearances.

The 40-year-old spent the bulk of his career with the Ottawa Senators, where he holds the franchise record in wins (202). He has also suited up for the Chicago Blackhawks, Florida Panthers, and Colorado Avalanche.

Anderson ranks fifth among active goalies in career wins (291) and second in career saves (19,994). He owns a .913 save percentage across 652 games played.

Dell, 32, has authored a .906 save percentage across 114 career NHL games, most of which he's played with the San Jose Sharks. The 32-year-old recorded a .857 save percentage in seven contests with the New Jersey Devils this past season.

The Sabres were in need of goaltenders after Linus Ullmark and Carter Hutton departed in free agency. Buffalo's top goalie prospect, Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen, and Dustin Tokarski are likely destined for the minors.
