The Brick Project
The proud and storied history of the Buffalo Sabres franchise has been unquestionably influenced by the long list of players who have worn the Blue and Gold on the ice. However, it is the team’s loyal fans who have made truly made Buffalo ‘Hockey Heaven’ for generations. For that reason, the organization has decided to honor both its former players and its passionate fans in its design for an ‘Alumni Plaza’ outside of First Niagara Center.
Beginning this summer, the plaza will be transformed into a shrine to all the Sabres players that have dazzled the hockey-crazed people of Buffalo for years. Plaques featuring the names of every player in Sabres history will be placed on brick columns across the plaza to forever immortalize their contribution to the team.
Due to weather conditions, Alumni Plaza brick installation will resume on March 15, 2013.
Fans who wish to have their names listed among Sabres legends will have the opportunity to purchase customized plaques to be hung along with the Sabres alumni plaques throughout the plaza. The alumni plaques listing the names of hundreds of Sabres players, in concert with the names of the fans who have cheered them for decades, will be a lasting testament and tribute of a strong hockey franchise for years to come. Fans can purchase bricks for $100.
