BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - The Buffalo Sabres are keeping Darcy Regier around as general manager.

Team owner Terry Pegula announced Saturday that the Sabres have extended Regier's contract. Buffalo opens its lockout-shortened season Sunday at home against Philadelphia.

Regier, entering his 16th season as Sabres general manager, has overseen a franchise that has reached the Eastern Conference finals four times, most recently in 2007. However, Buffalo has missed the playoffs in three of the past five seasons.

No terms of the extension were released, but Pegula says the deal was in place for quite some time.

"He's a talented guy,'' Pegula said. "From what I read, maybe not everyone agrees with that, but he has all the resources now. We work very well together and we're looking forward to the future.''
