Report: Pegula Hires Former Pens Exec Ted Black

From The Buffalo News,

Pennsylvania billionaire Terry Pegula has started putting key pieces around him as he prepares to take over officially as owner of the Buffalo Sabres. A source confirmed this morning that Pegula has hired former Pittsburgh Penguins executive Ted Black as part of his management team.

    Black’s official title and responsibilities have were not yet clear, but it appeared he would be one of Pegula’s top confidants as they begin structuring the front office. Pegula was still awaiting full approval for his purchase from the NHL board of governors, which is expected to be completed sometime next week.

    Pegula has no comment this morning, spokesman Ben Bouma said. Black is expected to be heavily involved in all major decisions involving the future of Sabres’ management on all levels. Although it’s not clear, it’s conceivable he would eventually be named team president and oversee daily operations while reporting directly to Pegula.
