The Buffalo Sabres announced Tuesday that they have promoted Jerry Forton to assistant general manager.

Forton has served as the Sabres’ director of amateur scouting since the 2020-21 season. He previously spent three seasons in Buffalo as director of collegiate scouting and two seasons as assistant director of scouting. Before that, Forton served as an amateur scout for the Sabres during the 2014-15 season and as an assistant coach during the 2013-14 campaign. 


Additionally, Buffalo hired Chris Bergeron as an amateur free-agent scout.

Bergeron joins Buffalo’s amateur scouting staff after most recently serving as head coach of the Miami University (Ohio) hockey program for the past five seasons. Previously, Bergeron was head coach at Bowling Green State University from 2010-11 until 2018-19.
