On Tuesday the Buffalo Sabres fired General Manager Jason Botterill and named Kevyn Adams as new GM Adams had been serving as the team’s senior VP of business administration.

The move makes Adams the ninth general manager of the Buffalo Sabres and fourth since Terry Pegula purchased the team in 2011.

It’s the latest stop for the Clarence native in an NHL career that now includes time spent as a player, coach, and in the front office both on the administrative and hockey operations sides. 

Adams was entrusted with growing the game at the youth level when he joined the management team at LECOM Harborcenter in October 2013 as vice president and director of the Academy of Hockey. He was elevated to general manager of the complex in January 2019.

Last September, Adams was promoted to Sabres Senior Vice President of Business Administration, overseeing the organization’s day-to-day business operations. 

“Kevyn brings unsurpassed experience, perspective and vision to this position,” Sabres president Kim Pegula said then. “He exemplifies our company values of teamwork, respect, accountability, integrity, trust and success; and will further our company mission in this role.”
