Pat LaFontaine resigns from Sabres


The Buffalo Sabres have announced that Pat LaFontaine has resigned as the team’s president of hockey operations.

This announcement comes shortly after the Sabers traded away Ryan Miller, a player LaFontaine was in favor of keeping. Recent reports suggest that LaFontaine was also upset that coach Ted Nolan had not had the interim tag removed from his title.

The Sabres said in the press release that LaFontaine would return to working for the NHL. He lasted just three months in Buffalo.
