Welcome Aboard, Rob Niedermayer!

by Anne

On Wednesday July 7, the Sabres signed free agent center Rob Niedermayer to a one-year contract worth $1.15 million plus playoff bonuses.

Let's welcome Robbie, shall we?
  • He was born in Edmonton but grew up in BC
  • Most famous for being Scott Niedermayer's little brother
  • He's 35
  • He won the Stanley Cup with Anaheim in 2007
  • He once scored 26 goals in a season, but usually hovers in the 10-goals per season range
  • It seems Edmonton, Pittsburgh, and Buffalo were the three teams who made him offers. Picking Buffalo over Edmonton is understandable, but picking Buffalo over Pittsburgh is surprising. Turns out Robbie has a history with Lindy when he played in Florida and Lindy was an assistant coach. I like it.
Let's welcome Rob to town.

Yes, we're paying Rob in orange slices, tasty, tasty orange slices.

Thus the Rob Niedermayer tag is born.


  1. He looks like quite the saucy buccaneer in that jaunty hat.

  2. He needs to do a press conference with the pirate hat.
