Sabres sign defenseman Vsevolod Komarov to three-year entry-level contract

Komarov was Buffalo's fifth-round pick in the 2022 NHL Draft

Buffalo, N.Y. (WGR 550) - The Buffalo Sabres have signed another prospect from their 2022 NHL Draft class, inking defensemen Vsevolod Komarov to his three-year entry-level contract.

Komarov was Buffalo's fifth-round selection (134th overall) in this past year's draft after playing his draft year in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League with the Quebec Remparts.

Listen live to WGR:

The Russian-born blue liner put up 39 points (12+27) in 69 games this past season for the Remparts, plus eight points (1+7) in 18 playoff games. The 6-foot-2, 182-pound defenseman helped Quebec to a QMJHL championship win over the Halifax Mooseheads and an appearance in the CHL Memorial Cup.

The 19-year-old still has one year remaining of eligibility playing in the QMJHL before he's able to make the jump to the pros.

Komarov is the fifth member of the Sabres' 2022 NHL Draft class to sign his entry-level contract, joining first-rounders Matthew Savoie, Noah Ostlund, and Jiri Kulich, along with third-round pick Viktor Neuchev.
