The Buffalo Sabres will once again have their special Blue and Gold carpet event during the pre-season. This year’s carpet walk event will take place before Saturday’s pre-season game against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
Fans that arrive early enough at First Niagara Center will see their favorite Buffalo Sabres walk the Blue and Gold Carpet into the arena prior to taking the ice for the game.
The event will be hosted at Alumni Plaza and starts at 4:30. Music will be played, and beverages will be available by the team. Buffalo Sabres broadcasters Brian Duff and Danny Gare will host the event – introducing players and providing interviews with them as they arrive at the arena.
Fans will have the chance to gather around the roped carpetway to try and get autograph’s and pictures with their favorite players.
All players still on the roster on Saturday will talk part in the walk.
