“I would like to thank Don for his time in Buffalo and commitment to the Sabres organization,” General Manager Kevyn Adams said. “He has been integral in the development of many of our players and has undoubtedly been the right coach to bring us to where we are now, but I felt it was necessary to move in a different direction at this point in time. My expectation is to be a consistent contender and unfortunately that goal has not been met.”

The team also fired assistant coach Jason Christie and video coordinator Matt Smith.

“I would also like to thank Jason and Matt for their contributions to the team. This is not a decision I take lightly but know it is in the best interest of our team moving forward.”

He was 122-125-27 with the Sabres. Granato was let go one day after their season concluded with a loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.
