BUFFALO, N.Y. (November 9, 2012) --- The Buffalo Sabres Foundation and Buffalo Sabres Alumni Association today hosted an event that will provide more than 40,000 meals – 5,000 of which will be sent to the hardest-hit areas of New York City and New Jersey in the wake of Hurricane Sandy – to under-fed kids and families throughout the community.

BUFFALO, N.Y. (October 26, 2012) --- The National Hockey League announced today the cancellation of the 2012-13 regular-season schedule through Nov 30.

As a result, the following Buffalo Sabres games at First Niagara Center have been cancelled: Nov. 3 vs. Carolina, Nov. 16 vs. Philadelphia, Nov. 21 vs. Columbus, Nov. 27 vs. Winnipeg, and Nov. 29 vs. Vancouver.

It was 40 years ago today that Paul Henderson scored the Goal Of The Century.
I remember it like it was yesterday as Henderson’s goal with 34 seconds remaining in game eight of the Summit Series against the Soviet Union, gave Canada a 6-5 win and the series based on four wins and a tie.
The Russians earned a 2-1-1 record after the first four games in Canada and won game five at home. Canada, who was supposed to take the series with little difficulty, was reeling going into the final three games.
Zemgus Girgensons faces an interesting dilemma.
The Buffalo Sabres second first round draft pick of 2012, due to playing in the USHL, can either stick with his commitment to play at the University of Vermont, or begin his professional career at age 18 with the Rochester Americans.
The question has been asked countless times since the draft, and now the time has come that Girgensons will really begin to decide his playing future.
The fans spoke and the Buffalo Sabres have listened - the organization is building a statue of the famed French Connection line outside First Niagara Center. It's a tribute that has been a long time coming.
Sabres President Ted Black announced the plans for the bronze statue at a press conference this afternoon.
"This was one of the most requested items in our fan suggestion box that we opened up last year," said Black.
He's not the best player on the ice, but Frederick Roy does come from the best roots.
Roy is the son of NHL legend and hockey Hall of Famer Patrick Roy, arguably the greatest goaltender of all time. He knows how much his name means in hockey.
"It's followed me my whole life," said about living up to the name Roy. "I mean, I'm proud of what my father did accomplish in his career. For me, he's a role model. I try to bring the same kind of aspect to my game."
It was a bit of a whirlwind time for Sabres center Cody Hodgson last Spring.
He went from being on a top team in Vancouver to a team fighting just to make the postseason. He was acquired in the middle of a long road trip which required an unusually excessive amount of travel; he had to fly from Vancouver to Buffalo to California.
He was also inserted right into the top line for the Sabres and was immediately expected to help spark a team that was desperate for offense.
