Longtime Buffalo Sabres executive Michael Gilbert has resigned as senior vice president of administration and general manager of HarborCenter, the team announced Wednesday.
“Terry and I would like to personally thank Mike for his 21 years of commitment to the Buffalo Sabres, and for his dedication to the growth of amateur hockey in Western New York. We wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors,” Sabres co-owner and president Kim Pegula said in a statement.
The resignation of Gilbert, a Tonawanda native who joined the Sabres in 1997, comes on the heels of the departure of Nik Fattey, who served as Wholesale nhl jerseys
the general manager of the Buffalo Beauts of the National Women’s Hockey League as well as the vice president and director of hockey at HarborCenter. A source confirmed Wednesday that Fattey resigned on Tuesday but said the two departures are unrelated.
Gilbert, who joined the Sabres after two years with the New Jersey Devils, served in a variety of roles with the club. He was the team’s longtime director of public relations and its most prominent media contact before transitioning to a vice president role in 2011 and his new jobs with HarborCenter in 2016.
In a statement also issued through the Sabres, Gilbert said he was looking at other job prospects.
