Greece native Brian Gionta, a National Hockey League player for 12 seasons and captain of the Montreal Canadiens the last four seasons, signed a three-year contract Tuesday with the Buffalo Sabres, team officials announced.

The contract is worth $12.75 million, or $4.25 million per season, reports said.

Gionta, 35, was a free agent, having finished a five-year contract with Montreal, where he had 18 goals and 22 assists in 81 regular-season games and a goal and six assists in 17 playoff games.

A graduate of Aquinas Institute in Rochester, Gionta played four years at Boston College, captaining the Eagles to the NCAA national championship in 2000-01. He was drafted in the third round by New Jersey in 1998 and played there for seven seasons.

Gionta has 249 goals and 236 assists in 776 regular-season games during his career, and 32 goals and 36 assists in 112 playoff games.

He is represented by Pittsford-based agent Stephen Bartlett.

Gionta’s younger brother, Stephen, plays for New Jersey.
