Sabres introduce Murray as GM

The Buffalo Sabres have officially named Tim Murray as their new General Manager.

Murray was introduced during a press conference at First Niagara Center, along with the news the club had hired Craig Patrick, who will serve as a special assistant and advisor to the hockey department.

Four final candidates were in the running for the GM vacancy -- Murray, Jim Benning (Boston Bruins Assistant GM), Mike Futa (Los Angeles' co-director of amateur scouting) and Brad Treliving (Phoenix's VP of Hockey Operations & Assistant GM).

Murray was named Ottawa's Assistant GM on July 5, 2007. He has also served as the GM of the team's American Hockey League affiliate, the Binghamton Senators.

He first entered the NHL in 1993-94 as an amateur scout with the Detroit Red Wings. In 1994, he joined the Florida Panthers in the scouting department and left as the club's Director of Amateur Scouting.

Murray served as Director of Player Personnel with the Anaheim Ducks from 2002-03 to 2004-05 before moving to the New York Rangers as Assistant Dir. of Player Personnel in July 2005.
