Sabres sign Providence defenseman Bryson to 3-year contract

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Defenseman Jacob Bryson is skipping his senior season at Providence after signing a three-year entry level contract with the Buffalo Sabres.

Bryson will report to Buffalo's AHL affiliate in Rochester after signing an amateur tryout contract. That means his NHL contract won't kick in until next season.

The Sabres selected Bryson in the fourth round of the 2017 draft.
