PUCKTOBERFEST WILL HELP RING IN 2011-12 SEASON
The Buffalo Sabres today announced they will be hosting Pucktoberfest on Oct. 8. Fans are invited to First Niagara Center to enjoy a plaza party with European flair and watch the team take on Los Angeles in Berlin on the HD video board in the arena. The event will give fans a chance to watch the team as it plays in Europe to open the 2011-12 regular season.

The festivities begin at 11:30 a.m. in the plaza outside First Niagara Center as the Auslanders, Buffalo’s premier German band, take the stage to perform traditional authentic German music as well as popular cover songs. Dancing to the Bavarian sounds will be the Schuhplattlers, a traditional German dance group from Western New York.

At 2 p.m., fans can head into the arena to watch the Sabres play the Los Angeles Kings in Berlin on the HD video board. The game is part of the NHL Premiere Series and is the second of two games the team is playing during its nine-day trip to Europe.

European-themed food and beverages will be available for purchase on the plaza and throughout the arena during the event. The Sabres Store will also be open so fans can purchase Sabres NHL Premiere Series merchandise.

Admission to the event is free, as is parking in the First Niagara Center parking ramp attached to the arena.
