Sabres coaches Granato, Ellis cleared from COVID-19 protocol

Bob McKenzie provides the latest on Buffalo, including general manager Kevyn Adams' plans to fill the assistant GM position and if there's anything imminent on the trade front.

Buffalo Sabres interim coach Don Granato and assistant Matt Ellis are headed back to work after being cleared from the NHL’s COVID-19 protocol.

The Sabres announced Granato and Ellis are traveling to join the team in Boston after spending a night in self-isolation in Pittsburgh.

Both were placed in the protocol on Thursday, hours before Buffalo’s game against the Penguins. That led to general manager Kevyn Adams stepping in to coach the 4-0 loss, which extended the Sabres franchise-record winless skid to 0-14-2.
