Buffalo Sabres Lock Up GM With Long-Term Extension

The Buffalo Sabres announced they've signed general manager Kevyn Adams to a multi-year contract extension. Adams is in his third year as GM of the Sabres and has put together a promising roster full of potential.

Sabres owner Terry Pegula commented on the deal and had this to say:

Kevyn's leadership and vision over the past two seasons has proven to be invaluable, and I am confident in his ability to continue to move us forward as an organization. He is respected by players, coaches, staff, and peers around the league alike due to the poise with which he carries himself and the respect he reciprocates to every individual he encounters. He has grown in different roles throughout the organization, providing him unique perspectives that help him perform at the highest level as general manager. I, along with the fans and community, am happy to see Kevyn continue to build a winning culture both on and off the ice. Additionally, I am appreciative of his communication skills and dedication to the entire organization. I am thrilled to extend Kevyn's contract and have him lead the Buffalo Sabres for several years to come.

Expect to see Adams meet with the media on Thursday morning. The Clarence, New York native joined the Sabres franchise in 2009.
