BEYOND THE BOARDS
THE SABRES \"INVADE CANADA\" AGAIN!

It's always fun to go north of the border, especially when you're still in Sabres Country.

These past two days, Buffalo Sabres players, alumni and team employees spent time in Fort Erie, Niagara Falls and St. Catharines to connect with the local community.

Our "Invade Canada" caravan began with a lunch and networking event with business leaders in Fort Erie. The Mayor of Fort Erie Doug Martin joined us as Sabres President Ted Black and President of the HARBORcenter John Koelmel provided an update on the state of the Sabres and HARBORcenter project. Sabres alumni Larry Playfair and Andrew Peters mingled with the crowd.

We continued on to the Niagara Health System's St. Catharines site where we were joined by Sabres forward Cody Hodgson. While it was difficult to see the children needing care, it was heartwarming to see the smiles Cody, the alumni, and Sabretooth brought to their faces.

We traveled to the Gale Centre in Niagara Falls where Sabres forward Marcus Foligno and alumni Rob Ray, Jay McKee and Richie Dunn met with youth hockey teams. Marcus spent time skating with the Niagara Falls Rivermen novice AAA team.

Then it was a dinner at Fallsview Casino with Cody Hodgson, Steve Ott, Sabres alums, and Casino members.

The invasion continued on Tuesday bright and early. Marcus put in a solid shift working the drive-thru at Tim Hortons in Fort Erie.

This is what you may have seen if you were one of those lucky customers. Sabretooth was there too.

The trip concluded with a stop at Garrison Road Public School. Marcus, Sabretooth and Rob Ray met with third graders and read them a book - about hockey, of course.
