Nolan loses interim tag, signs extension with Sabres

Monday, 03.31.2014 / 3:46 PM / News

Joe Yerdon - NHL.com Correspondent

BUFFALO -- Ted Nolan's return to the Buffalo Sabres is complete; now he's tasked with guiding the franchise through a rebuild.

The Sabres announced Monday they have removed the interim tag from Nolan and signed him to a three-year contract extension to be the full-time coach.

"I'm really excited about going with the next step forward and helping shape this team into a very competitive team and a team that will hopefully one day battle for a championship," Nolan said at a press conference announcing his extension.

Nolan was named interim coach Nov. 13 following the firing of coach Ron Rolston and general manager Darcy Regier. Current Sabres general manager Tim Murray said Nolan has proven to be the best man for the job.

"He's been in a lot of situations here that haven't been great," Murray said. "A lot of nights I've liked the way our team competed. We have to get him better players. Some games that we hang on and get a shootout loss or something like that, I think with better players and the way he coaches we'll get a better result. In trying times I've liked a lot of what I've seen."

NHL.com

Gordie Howe, the legendary Mr. Hockey, celebrates his 86th birthday Monday.

Born March 31, 1928 in Floral, Saskatchewan, Howe has been part of the hockey universe since his debut with the Detroit Red Wings on Oct. 16, 1946.

The numbers that surround Howe's career have reached iconic status. His 801 goals and 1,850 points when he retired in 1980 were NHL standards; he still ranks second to Wayne Gretzky and in goals, and third, behind Gretzky and Mark Messier, in points.

Howe played 26 seasons in the NHL, all but one with the Red Wings. He's the only player in NHL history to play in five decades, and his 1,767 games remains the most in League history. His 1,685 penalty minutes are a testament to the toughness he played with.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.

— Bryan Trottier on making his return to coaching as an assistant with the Sabres
