Martin Brodeur declined the Buffalo Sabres' request for an interview, John Shannon of Sportsnet said Tuesday.

The Sabres fired general manager Tim Murray and coach Dan Bylsma on April 20. Shannon told WGR 550AM in Buffalo that the Sabres reached out to Brodeur, the St. Louis Blues assistant GM, for an unspecified position.

"They were told Mr. Brodeur will not be interested and will not be coming to Buffalo for an interview," Shannon said.

The Sabres have permission to interview Calgary Flames assistant GM Craig Conroy, Flames president Ken King told the Calgary Herald on Monday.

Six other men have interviewed to become Sabres GM, according to The Associated Press: Jason Botterill (Pittsburgh Penguins associate general manager), Paul Fenton (Nashville Predators assistant GM), Tom Fitzgerald (New Jersey Devils assistant GM), Michael Futa (Los Angeles Kings assistant GM), Bill Guerin (Penguins assistant GM) and Bill Zito (Columbus Blue Jackets assistant GM).

Sabres owner Terry Pegula said Sunday he was close to hiring a general manager, according to the AP.

Brodeur joined the Blues front office as an adviser in January 2015 and signed a three-year contract to become assistant GM on May 20, 2015. A former goaltender for the Devils and Blues, Brodeur holds NHL records for wins (691), shutouts (125), and goaltender games played (1,266).
