Taylor Hall is betting on himself and choosing a surprising destination.

Hall agreed Sunday night to sign an $8 million, one-year deal with the Buffalo Sabres, according to a person with direct knowledge of the move.

Hall joins his fourth NHL organization since being the No. 1 pick in the 2010 draft. He's reuniting with Sabres coach Ralph Krueger, for whom he played the 2013 lockout-shortened season with the Edmonton Oilers.

Buffalo is Hall's third team in two years after the New Jersey Devils traded him to the Arizona Coyotes in the middle of last season.

The 28-year-old, former Windsor Spitfire has played in just five career playoff games.
