BUFFALO -- The Buffalo Sabres have named former NHL player Kevyn Adams assistant coach.

The team announced the move on Wednesday, moving Adams from his position as player development coach to a higher-profile spot on head coach Lindy Ruff's staff.

Adams, 36, played 10 seasons for six different NHL teams and won a Stanley Cup with the 2005-06 Carolina Hurricanes. The former centre scored a career-high 15 goals that season.

The Sabres announced on June 2 that they would not renew the contract of associate coach Brian McCutcheon.
