he Rochester Americans announced today that the team has named Adam Mair and Mike Weber to serve as assistant coaches on the staff of head coach Seth Appert.
“Adam and Mike are perfect fits to help establish a winning culture and develop our players in the American Hockey League,” said Buffalo Sabres General Manager Kevyn Adams. “They share the same philosophies as Seth in their approach to the game and will be valuable resources for both Seth and our players.”
“I’m excited to add Adam Mair and Mike Weber to our coaching staff,” said Appert. “Adam has a proven track record in player development and firsthand knowledge of our player pool and how to help make people better. Mike brings tremendous experience helping young defensemen develop and a real passion for developing young men. They both have made their careers as team-first, competitive players and they share a passion for both the Sabres and Amerks organizations.”
Mair joins the Amerks coaching staff following five seasons as a player development coach with the Buffalo Sabres, where he was instrumental in the development of the organization’s top prospects. Mair made his pro coaching debut this past season when he served as an interim assistant coach for Rochester’s first 18 games of the 2019-20 campaign, helping the Amerks go 12-3-1-2 over that span and maintain a first-place standing in the American Hockey League’s North Division.
