Person familiar with moves says Sabres fire assistant coaches Patrick, Adams

BUFFALO, N.Y. - A person familiar with the decisions has confirmed the Buffalo Sabres have fired assistant coaches James Patrick and Kevyn Adams.

The person spoke on the condition of anonymity Thursday, because the Sabres have not announced the moves. The Buffalo News first reported the firings on its website earlier in the day.

The changes come two days after Ron Rolston took over as head coach. Rolston closed the season as the Sabres interim coach after Lindy Ruff was fired in February.

Patrick completed his seventh season as a Sabres assistant. He rejoined his former team after a 21-season NHL career as a defenceman.

Adams completed his fourth season on the Sabres staff, including the past two as an assistant. From suburban Buffalo, Adams enjoyed a 10-year NHL career as a forward.

Quote of the Day

I think I'm lucky to be here and you definitely don't take very many things for granted, if you take anything for granted. I definitely put my family and my wife and my close family in perspective, that they're the most important thing in the world. I want to do whatever I can to play hockey, but like I said, under the right circumstances.
