Pittsburgh Penguins assistant general manager Jason Botterill will reportedly be granted permission to interview with the Buffalo Sabres for their vacant general manager position.

Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports that Botterill has been granted permission to speak to the Sabres but he had not been contacted about the Sabres opening as of Wednesday.

The Sabres on Wednesday fired general manager Darcy Regier and head coach Ron Rolston. They subsequently hired Pat LaFontaine as their new president of hockey operations and also named Ted Nolan as interim head coach, his second time as bench boss of the team.

TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie has also reported that Toronto Maple Leafs assistant general manager Claude Loiselle, Montreal Canadiens assistant general manager Rick Dudley and  Boston Bruins assistant general manager Jim Benning are also names being considered for the Sabres' vacancy.
