The Buffalo Sabres have fired general manager Tim Murray and head coach Dan Bylsma.

After missing the playoffs for the sixth straight year, the Buffalo Sabres will start next season with a clean slate.

The 2010 French Open champion, Schiavone also reached a milestone by winning her 600th career match. Arruabarrena defeated Spanish compatriot Sara Sorribes 6-2, 4-6, 6-4 in her semi-final.

Sabres owner Terry Pegula made the announcement in a statement released Thursday morning, saying the decision was made after "reviewing the past season and looking at the future of our organization". "We have begun the process to fill these positions immediately". Murray had been the general manager since 2014.

The move comes a day after a report that said Buffalo star Jack Eichel would not sign a contract extension this off-season if Bylsma remained the team's coach.

Last week, Murray had backed Bylsma returning for a third season as coach. Bylsma completed his second season. Of the 25 draftees during Murray's time in Buffalo, only Eichel and 2014 number one overall pick Sam Reinhart have seen more than a handful of minutes on the ice for the Sabres. "That's the way I look at it. I know it's an organization that is capable of doing that, and I want to be a part of it and I want to be a centerpiece of it".

Bylsma, 46, spent the past two seasons behind the bench and finished his tenure in Buffalo with a 68-73-23 record. The Grand Haven resident is best known for winning the Stanley Cup with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2009.
