Cunneyworth back in AHL
ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Randy Cunneyworth is returning to the Rochester Americans for a second time to coach the Buffalo Sabres’ AHL affiliate.
Cunneyworth had a 306-273-61 record and led the Americans to six playoff berths during an eight-season stint from 2000-08. He’s also a former NHL forward, who played 866 games over a 16-year career split between six teams, including 28 games with the Winnipeg Jets in 1989-90.
He was promoted Tuesday after spending the past two seasons working as the Sabres’ development coach.
