The Buffalo Sabres recently signed an affiliation agreement with the Gwinnett Gladiators of the ECHL. This does not affect Buffalo’s relationship with the Rochester Americans of the AHL; rather, this is just an additional affiliation.
The Sabres can now send prospects to the Gladiators, particularly for player development and draft prospects. Their season begins on October 14 in Florida, and the team is based in Duluth, GA.
The Gladiators are also affiliated with the Phoenix Coyotes.
