SABRES DONATE STREET HOCKEY EQUIPMENT TO ST. JOHN BAPTIST CHURCH
The Buffalo Sabres today announced the team has donated street hockey equipment to the St. John Baptist Church in downtown Buffalo. Mayor Byron Brown joined Sabres Chief Development Officer Cliff Benson and formally presented the equipment to Pastor Michael Chapman of St. John’s on Jan. 13 at the Reverend Dr. Bennett W. Smith Family Life Center in downtown Buffalo.

“This is a great way for us to reach out to our community,” Benson said. “Buffalo is a hockey town and we’re always looking for ways to grow the sport in our community. This donation will hopefully give even more people the opportunity to play a sport that they love.”

The donation includes 150 sticks (75 senior/75 junior), 10 sets of goalie equipment (five senior/five junior), and six nets, all to be used for hockey programs at the church and the Aloma D. Johnson Charter School.

Buffalo Sabres forward Tyler Ennis and the team’s mascot, Sabretooth, were also on-hand Friday afternoon to drop off the equipment.
