Mike Bales’ resignation from the Carolina Hurricanes makes a bit more sense now.
Bales will be the Buffalo Sabres’ new goaltending coach, sources told The Athletic’s Joe Yerdon.
He stepped down from the same role with the Hurricanes on Tuesday after two seasons with the team.
Bales previously served as goalie coach for the Pittsburgh Penguins from 2014-17. He now replaces Andrew Allen, who succeeded Arturs Irbe in Buffalo in 2015.
