With just hours remaining until the team kicks off their 2016-17 campaign, the Buffalo Sabres have come to terms on a contract extension with general manager Tim Murray.
Murray was named general manager of the Sabres in January of 2014, replacing long-time general manager Darcy Regier. Although the Sabres haven’t produced on the ice during Murray’s tenure, the 52-year-old has made some solid moves in office, including the drafting of both Sam Reinhart and Jack Eichel and the acquisition of current Sabres stars such as Ryan O’Reilly, Evander Kane and Kyle Okposo.
Murray was anxious to get an extension signed, stating “I’ve signed the paper but have yet to read it.” Murray thanked the Pegulas and Sabres president Russ Brandon for both the opportunity and his extension.
Specific details regarding Murray’s new deal have not been released to the public.
