Jason N. Botterill (born May 19, 1976) is a Canadian former professional ice hockey left winger and the current general manager of the Buffalo Sabres. Botterill was the former associate GM of the Pittsburgh Penguins before being named as the Sabres general manager on May 11, 2017.

Contents Playing career

He was drafted by the Dallas Stars in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft, First Round, 20th Overall. Before turning pro, he played four seasons (1993–97) at the University of Michigan, where he helped lead the Wolverines to an NCAA national championship in 1996. He is the only Canadian to ever win a Gold Medal in three straight World Junior Hockey Championships. In eight seasons as a pro, Botterill played in 481 professional games,[1] including 88 in the National Hockey League with the Dallas Stars, Atlanta Thrashers, Calgary Flames, and Buffalo Sabres. Other stops in his career included the Michigan K-Wings and Orlando Solar Bears of the International Hockey League and the Saint John Flames of the American Hockey League, where he was a member of the 2001 Calder Cup championship team. After serving as the Flames captain in 2001–02, Botterill signed with Buffalo as a free agent.

His career was abruptly halted when, as a member of the Rochester Americans, he suffered a concussion during a game against the Syracuse Crunch on October 31, 2004. After missing the next 49 games, Botterill announced his retirement from hockey.

Management career

Botterill received his MBA from The Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan in 2007. Following his playing career, he worked with the NHL Offices and the NHL Central Registry and spent the 2006–2007 season as a scout for the Dallas Stars.

On July 17, 2007 the Pittsburgh Penguins announced Jason's hiring as director of hockey administration. His main responsibilities included monitoring the salary cap and contract research and negotiations, but also worked with salary arbitration and preparation as well as scouting.[2] Botterill was promoted by the Penguins to assistant general manager on May 22, 2009. He replaced Chuck Fletcher, who was named general manager of the Minnesota Wild on the same day. In The Hockey News 2011 edition of the 100 Most Powerful People in ice hockey, Botterill was considered one of the Top 40 under the age of 40.[3] On May 16, 2014 Botterill was named as interim general manager of the Pittsburgh Penguins and as a candidate for the full position.[4] On June 6, 2014 Jim Rutherford was named general manager of the Penguins. In his press conference Rutherford announced that Botterill would be named associate general manager of the Penguins. On May 11, 2017, the Sabres announced that Botterill had been hired as the team's general manager.[5]
