BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Buffalo Sabres have signed interim coach Ted Nolan to a contract extension beyond this season.

The team announced the news on its Twitter account early Monday.

Nolan returned for a second stint in Buffalo in mid-November, when he was hired on an interim basis. He took over for Ron Rolston, who was fired along with GM Darcy Regier, after Buffalo got off to a franchise-worst 4-15-1 start.

The Sabres (20-45-9) remain in last place, and in the process of rebuilding from scratch.
