BEYOND THE BOARDS
TRAINING CAMP: MONDAY, SEPT. 16

Session One – 10:30 a.m.

Christian Ehrhoff

Christian Ehrhoff is ready to play and he’ll get the chance to lace up his skates sooner rather than later.

The Buffalo Sabres defenseman said he will be one of the players that will suit up in the Sabres’ second exhibition game Tuesday night in Columbus. The game can be heard on WGR 550 at 7 p.m. The official lineup has yet to be finalized.

“That’s the fun part about our job, playing the games and I’m definitely looking forward to it,” Ehrhoff said after practice at First Niagara Center on Monday.

Ehrhoff is entering his 10th NHL season and his third with the Sabres. Due to some roster turnover, he’s already one of the longest-tenured Sabres defensemen in training camp.

While rookies like Rasmus Ristolainen and Mark Pysyk have been given opportunities to make the team, the Sabres also brought in veterans like Henrik Tallinder and Jamie McBain.

Ehrhoff aims to set a good example both on and off the ice for the younger players in camp that are vying for roster spots in the NHL.

“I never really set any personal goals, especially not any statistics I want to achieve. It’s more that I want to play a consistent season,” he said. “It’s 82 games. It’s a long season and there are ups and downs. I try to keep the downs as few and as short as possible and just try to play solid for my team.”
