The Buffalo Sabres announced two front office moves this morning for Keyvn Adams’ staff. Jeremiah Crowe was promoted to director of scouting and Jason Nightingale added assistant director of scouting to his job title of director of analytics.
Crowe has been a pro scout with the Sabres for the last three years. He spent time with USA Hockey as their director of player personnel for one year and assistant director of player personnel the year prior. Before joining USA Hockey, he worked with Kevyn Adams at the Academy of Hockey as a coach in 2014.
The other move with Nightingale is interesting. The current director of analytics adds some more job responsibility in the organization. This move lines up with Adams message of putting more of a focus on analytics to assist in making hockey decisions.
At the very least these are some intriguing first moves for Adams in rebuilding his hockey department. We’ll see who else he plans on bringing in over the next few weeks to months as the Sabres site idle until the offseason.
