“Kim and I were saddened to hear the devastating news of Rene Robert’s passing. When we first took over as owners, the members of The French Connection were three of the first people to welcome us to the organization. During our time with the team, Rene has been one of the most active alumni and we’ve grown to know him well over the past 10 years. He was a friend to us and to the entire organization and will be missed dearly. Our thoughts and prayers are with Rene’s family during this difficult time.”
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.
Our thoughts are with Sabres legend Rene Robert, who is recovering in Florida after suffering a heart attack. Rene has been a fixture in our community since his days playing with the French Connection – a true legend on and off the ice. The entire organization is behind Rene and his family and we pray for a full recovery.
