Buffalo Sabres To Face Minnesota Wild At Pegula Ice Arena During NHL Preseason

Jack Eichel, Sam Reinhart, and the Buffalo Sabres are heading to Happy Valley.

Terry Pegula, billionaire owner of the Buffalo Sabres and the Buffalo Bills, has worked his magic yet again, as the Sabres will take on the Minnesota Wild on Sept. 26 for an NHL preseason game at Pegula Ice Arena — the first game of its caliber to ever be played at the home of Penn State hockey.

Frist reported by the Democrat and Chronicle, the game was originally planned to be held in downtown Rochester, New York at the Blue Cross Arena. Inadequate facilities and lackluster amenities ultimately led the organization to relocate the game. In a statement released by the Sabres and Buffalo Bills President Russ Brandon, he stated, “The game was going to be in Rochester, but we don’t feel the facility is up to the standards to play an NHL game.” The official announcement will be released Wednesday, June 29 when the team reveals its preseason schedule for the 2016-17 season.
