The seminar will feature relevant player and coaching presentations, followed by a rare question and answer session with members of the Buffalo Sabres and Canisius College men's hockey coaching staff.

The seminar will be hosted by Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier and Head Coach Lindy Ruff. In addition, Sabres Video Scout Jon Christiano will discuss basic player skills, and Administrative Assistant Coach Jeff Holbrook will provide a demonstration on the use of video to review player and team systems.
