Bruce Fedyck / USA Today

The Buffalo Sabres aren't just looking to rebuild at the NHL Entry Draft, where they're likely to select Jack Eichel.

The squad is also in the market for a new head coach and names have begun to surface for the vacant position.

Former San Jose Sharks coach Todd McLellan and minor-league coach Luke Richardson are among initial candidates for the position, reports The Associated Press.

The Sabres relieved Ted Nolan of duties as head coach on April 12 after a 23-51-8 season.

The AP also reports that Buffalo could be interested in Detroit Red Wings coach Mike Babcock as well.
