BUFFALO – The Buffalo Sabres have replaced General Manager Jason Botterill.
“We have relieved Jason Botterill of his duties as General Manager,” owners Terry and Kim Pegula announced Tuesday on social media.
Senior Vice President of Business Administration Kevyn Adams has been named General Manager.
Botterill was a NHL winger drafted by the Dallas Stars. After his playing career he served as associate general manager with the Pittsburgh Penguins.
He held his Sabre’s post for three years and his dismissal comes in the face of a nine-year playoff drought for Buffalo.
