The Buffalo Sabres have signed general manager Kevyn Adams to a multi-year contract extension, the team announced Wednesday.
Adams is entering his third season as general manager after spending over a decade in various roles within the organization. The Clarence, New York native joined the franchise in 2009 as a player development coach, a role he held for two seasons before serving as an assistant coach during the 2011-12 and 2012-13 campaigns.
“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,” Sabres owner Terry Pegula said in a statement.
“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.”
Adams was named vice president of business administration in September 2019, a role he held until he was named general manager in January 2020.
The Sabres finished the 2021-22 season with a 32-39-11 record, placing fifth in the Atlantic Division.
