Sabres Alert

Sabres hire Botterill as GM

It’s official. The Sabres have their next General Manager. The team announced Thursday morning that it has hired Jason Botterill.

Botterill played 88 games in his NHL career, on four different teams. Drafted by the Dallas Stars 20th overall in 1994, he also played for the Atlanta Thrashers, Calgary Flames and of course, the Buffalo Sabres. He retired in 2004 after suffering a concussion while playing for the Rochester Americans.

Botterill comes with experience and has won two Stanley Cups as part of the Pittsburgh Penguins as he served as the assistant GM.

“We are very happy to welcome Jason Botterill to the Buffalo Sabres family. Jason’s hockey knowledge, experience drafting and developing players, and his approach to management stood out to us during our interview process. Jason has built a solid reputation as a leader that connects strongly with players and staff around him. We are confident he will have a positive impact within our organization and will help us get to our ultimate goal.” -Terry Pegula

Botterill will have an introductory press conference this afternoon at 4 p.m.
