Playing mostly a top-four defensive role during his four full seasons in Buffalo, McCabe matched a career high with four goals and added 10 assists in 59 games in 2018-19.
McCabe has suffered a number of injuries over the past two seasons. He missed the final two months of 2017-18 after having surgery to his thumb and shoulder, missed three weeks in December with an upper-body injury and was expected to be out for the rest of last season after suffering an upper-body injury in March. But he came back for the Sabres’ final four games of the season.
He returns to a Sabres team that has not reached the playoffs since the 2010-11 season.
