BUFFALO – So much for Joe Sacco scouting for the Sabres. The Boston Bruins have hired the 45-year-old as an assistant coach, a job he had here last season.
The Sabres fired Sacco after finishing 30th overall last season, but quickly named him a pro scout. Sacco was inside the First Niagara Center last week during development camp.
Sacco coached the Colorado Avalanche from 2009-13, earning a Jack Adams Award nomination in 2009-10. Former Sabres coach Ron Rolston hired Sacco last year.
