The Buffalo Sabres have fired long-time General Manager Darcy Regier and second-year head coach Ron Rolston.

The Sabres notified Regier and Rolston of their decision Tuesday night, following the team's 3-2 shootout win against the Los Angeles Kings.

"I would like to thank Darcy for his 17 or so years of dedicated service to the Sabres," said Sabres owner Terry Pegula. "I have a lot of respect for Darcy Regier and I even have more respect for him after I talked to him last night."

Former Sabres star Pat LaFontaine has been brought on as President of Hockey Operations, while former Sabres coach Ted Nolan returns behind the bench as the club's interim head coach.

"I'm extremely proud to be here today," LaFontaine said. "I know this town, I know this city. I can promise you the hard work and passion that's here, I will give that same effort in my job."

The Sabres will begin the search for a new GM, with LaFontaine working with the team's current staff, which includes Assistant GM Kevin Devine.

LaFontaine, Devine and the team's overall management staff will work together, until a new GM is hired, on any roster moves that occur prior to hiring Regier's full-time replacement.
