BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Zemgus Girgensons will be back in the Blue & Gold for another season.

The team announced they signed the speedy center to a one-year, $1.6 million extension on Friday.

Girgensons scored a career-low five goals and tallied 18 points in 72 games this past season.

Since his breakout season during the 2014-2015 season in which he scored a career high 15-goals and added 15-assists en route to an All-Star appearance, Girgensons has struggled to produce over the last four years combining to score 26 goals.
