Sabres, Nolan close to three-year deal: report
It appears Ted Nolan will coach the Buffalo Sabres next season and beyond.

It appears Ted Nolan will coach the Buffalo Sabres next season and beyond.

TSN's Bob McKenzie reported Monday that Nolan has agreed to a three-year extension to remain in Buffalo and the contract has been turned over to lawyers. McKenzie added the deal is being finalized and is not done quite yet.

The Sabres are 15-26-7 since Nolan replaced Ron Rolston on an interim basis on Nov. 13. Buffalo was 4-15-1 when Nolan took over.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
