Two days after announcing Brandon Beane would be the new general manager of the Buffalo Bills, owner Terry Pegula announced today that the team has hired Jason Botterill to be the general manager of the Buffalo Sabres. 

Botterill joins the Sabres after spending the past 10 years as a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins where he helped build two Stanley Cup champion teams.  While serving as Penguins Associate General Manager, Botterill was involved in scouting, player development, contract negotiations and salary cap management.  During that time he was also the General Manager of the Pittsburgh’s AHL team, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, a team that made eight straight playoff appearances and won two division titles.   

Before joining the Penguins, Botterill was a scout for the Dallas Stars for one season.  He was chosen in the first round of the 1994 draft, 20th overall by the Stars and played eight seasons at the NHL level with the Stars, Atlanta Thrashers, Calgary Flames and the final three years with the Buffalo Sabres.

His first order of business with the Sabres will be to hire a new head coach.
