The Sabres built HarborCenter and renovated the training areas in KeyBank Center with the goal of making their three-rink complex the jewel of the NHL. It's working.
"Everything here is first class," Buffalo defenseman Mac Bennett, who is new to the organization, said Sunday. "I was with Montreal the last two years, and I didn’t think it was going to get much better than that. They’ve definitely outdone Montreal with the facilities and the way we’re treated and on top of that everything we have at our disposal. It’s pretty cool to see."
After opening training camp with three days in HarborCenter, the Sabres are set to shift their headquarters to the main arena. Buffalo will start its preseason schedule Monday against Minnesota at Penn State, then host Ottawa on Tuesday in KeyBank Center.
To coincide with their move away from HarborCenter, the Sabres are expected to trim their camp roster. Most of the early cuts will be prospects sent back to their junior teams.
