Mair joins Canisius hockey staff

Former Buffalo Sabre Adam Mair joined the Canisius hockey coaching staff as the program's director of player development. Mair played with the Sabres from 2002-10. In all he played 12 years in the NHL for the Leafs, Kings, Sabres and Devils. With the Golden Griffins, he will work with the coaches on practice and game evaluation. He will also work with individual and team video and scouting.

“It is great for our program to have a former NHL player with over 850 professional games join our staff,” Canisisu coach Dave Smith said in a press release from the college. “Adam’s passion for the game and his interest in helping our program reach the next level is evident on a daily basis. He is a tremendous asset to Canisius College hockey.

“Working with Adam will benefit all of the coaches, as well as Adam, and this will make a win-win situation for everybody involved. Our relationship with the Buffalo Sabres continues to grow and it’s great that we can connect with a former Sabre who chooses to reside in the greater Buffalo area.”
