Here today, gone tomorrow.

The Buffalo Sabres have been granted permission to interview Los Angeles Kings executive Mike Futa for their open general manager position, reports John Vogl of The Buffalo News.

Futa serves as assistant GM of the Kings, a position he was promoted to earlier this month following the firing of GM Dean Lombardi. He has been with Los Angeles since 2007, previously serving as vice president of hockey operations and director of player personnel.

The Sabres have not sought permission to speak with Lombardi, the report indicates.

Buffalo would be familiar territory for Futa, who was a candidate for the GM job with the Sabres in 2014. The team ultimately hired Tim Murray, who was fired on April 20 following four straight playoff misses.
