Yuri Khmylev has spent 21 of his 52 years in the Sabres’ organization. He received a letter that he was out, and the news obviously came hard.
As Buffalo continues to revamp its scouting department under new General Manager Jason Botterill, Khmylev is the latest to be let go. He had been in the amateur scouting staff since 2001.
Buffalo drafted Khmylev in 1992, and he spent four seasons playing for the Sabres. The winger scored 20 goals as a rookie in 1992-93 and had 27 goals the following season.
