He's also the son of Bill Hajt, who spent his full 854-game NHL career with the Buffalo Sabres.

The Buffalo Sabres will play in 16 back-to-back sets of games in the 2017-18 campaign. That's better than last season when Buffalo led the league with 19 back-to-back sets. Buffalo will have some of those sets rather early though as they'll be playing games on Oct. 14-15, Oct. 20-21, and Oct. 24-25. Keep that in mind when assessing the Sabres' goaltending situation as you could see the backup get a fair amount of playing time in the early portion of the campaign.

The Buffalo Sabres have hired Phil Housley as their new head coach. Housley had been serving as the Predators' assistant coach since 2013 and was credited with helping Nashville be one of the league's best defensive teams over that tenure. He's also a former NHL defenseman who played in 1,495 career games, including 608 with the Buffalo Sabres. "Based on his experience as a player and coach, we think Phil is uniquely qualified to be our head coach and to help us achieve our organizational goals," said Sabres GM Jason Botterill. "His approach to the game aligns with the way we envision our hockey team playing and we’re excited to see where his leadership will take us in the future."

Florida Panthers GM Dale Tallon is believed to be interested in talking to former NHL defensemen Phil Housley for the team's vacant head coaching position. Housley is an assistant coach for Nashville, so Tallon can't speak to him yet. Florida has interviewed University of Denver coach Jim Montgomery and former Montreal coach Michel Therrien. It's believed that Washington assistant Todd Reirden is also on the Panthers' radar.
