Dallas coach Lindy Ruff gets career win 600 against old club, Buffalo

When Lindy Ruff was an NHL hockey player for the Buffalo Sabres and New York Rangers, he gained a reputation as a player for his toughness, character and hard work on the ice as a left winger/defenseman.

He brought that same mentality behind the bench as one of the top coaches in the league.

Monday night, his Dallas Stars team defeated his former club, the Sabres, 3-2. The win earned the 54-year-old Ruff his 600th career win. Overall his record as a coach is 600-454-88 in 16 years.

Ruff was the head coach at Buffalo for 15 years, from the 1997-98 season until the middle of the 2012-2013 season. On February 20, 2013, the Sabres announced that Ruff had been relieved of his coaching duties. That ended his tenure as the NHL’s longest active-serving coach with one team and he was second only to Gregg Popovich of the San Antonio Spurs of the NBA as one of the longest-employed coaches in all of the four major sports in North America (NBA, NHL, NFL, MLB).
