Kim Pegula to AP: Botterill returning as Sabres' GM

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Buffalo Sabres general manager Jason Botterill has ownership's backing to return for a fourth season despite overseeing a team that will miss the playoffs for a ninth consecutive year, team president and co-owner Kim Pegula told The Associated Press on Tuesday.

Acknowledging the decision might be unpopular among some fans, Pegula said she and her husband, Terry, are confident in the job the GM has done. And while the plan all along was to retain Botterill before the NHL season was paused in March because of the pandemic, Pegula said it is even more important to do so now given the continuity he provides entering an uncertain and extended offseason.

"He's our GM. Our plan is to continue with him," Pegula said in a Zoom interview.
