The Sabres brought in John Scott last season to make them a tougher team. They liked what they saw because they're keeping him around next season, too.

The Sabres have re-signed the 6-foot-8, 270-pounder to a one-year deal. He was set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

Terms were not immediately available. The 30-year-old Scott made $600,000 last season and $525,000 in 2010-11.
