As Terry and Kim Pegula enter day 11 of searching for the next general manager for the Buffalo Sabres, they reportedly had another assistant general manager interview for the position.

According to SportsNet's Eric Francis, Calgary Assistant General Manager Craig Conroy spoke to ownership on Monday. All of this comes on the heels of the Flames announcing they re-signed GM Brad Treliving to a multi-year extension. 

Conroy just wrapped up his third season as the assistant general manager with the Flames.

The 45-year-old New York native enjoyed a 16 year NHL career and saw action in more than 1,000 games while suiting up for the Blues, Kings, and Flames before becoming an executive in the league.

On Monday the Associated Press reported the Sabres had interviewed six candidates for the opening.

TSN's Darren Dreger reported late Monday an announcement from the Pegulas on a new general manager could come later this week.

After firing Bills General Manager on Sunday, while speaking with reporters, Terry Pegula said "we're close" in terms of finding a new GM for the Blue & Gold.
