The Buffalo Sabres have named Ralph Krueger as the team’s 19th head coach in franchise history. The Sabres made the hiring official on Wednesday after an extensive search for a new coach following the firing of Phil Housley back on April 7. Krueger gets his second coaching job in the National Hockey League after spending the last five years in the English Premier League as the chairman of the Southampton Football Club. The 59-year-old last coached with the Edmonton Oilers in the 2012-13 lockout-shortened season, leading the team to a 19-22-7 in 48 games. He also served as the head coach for Team Europe at the 2016 World Cup of Hockey, where he led the European squad to a surprising second place finish in the tournament.
