BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The Buffalo Sabres have signed rookie forward Colin Jacobs to a three-year, entry-level contract.

Jacobs, 6-foot-1 and 202 pounds, was selected by Buffalo in the fourth round of the 2011 draft. From Coppell, Texas, he finished last season playing for Buffalo's American Hockey League affiliate in Rochester on a tryout basis, and had a goal and two assists in 11 games.

He joined Rochester after completing his Canadian junior career with Prince George of the Western Hockey League. He led Prince George with 25 goals and 53 points in 66 games last season.

In 252 career games, Jacobs had 142 points (69 goals, 73 assists) and 332 penalty minutes.

The signing was announced late Thursday night.
