Executive Transactions

Sabres Senior VP/Administration and HarborCenter GM MICHAEL GILBERT "has resigned" from both jobs. This "comes on the heels of the departure" of HarborCenter VP & Dir of Hockey and NWHL Buffalo Beauts GM NIK FATTEY. However, a source "insisted that the two departures are unrelated." Gilbert "served in a variety of roles" with the Sabres. He was the team's longtime PR Dir and its "most prominent media contact before transitioning" to a VP role in '11 and his most recent roles in '16 (BUFFALONEWS.com, 1/10).
