The Buffalo Sabres are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Sabres legend Rene Robert. Robert passed away in Florida today at the age of 72.
Rene was a tremendous player, teammate and person and truly loved this organization. His accomplishments on the ice as a member of the French Connection speak for themselves, but his impact in the community continued long past his playing career. Our thoughts are with Rene’s family and friends during this difficult time.
