One of the most popular Buffalo Sabres of all time has his own bobblehead. Fittingly, the Rick Jeanneret version talks.
The Sabres have unveiled a talking bobblehead of their Hall of Fame announcer, with all proceeds to benefit the Sabres' foundation and the Kevin Guest House, which provides a comfortable and supportive home for patients and families traveling to Buffalo for medical care.
Each bobblehead features five Jeanneret play-by-play calls and can be purchased for $30. Autographed versions are available for $75. Fans can purchase the bobbleheads at the Sabres Store or online at Sabres.com/RJ. Online orders can be shipped or picked up free of charge at Account Services in KeyBank Center.

In addition to the bobbleheads, a special $150 meet-and-greet package will be available for purchase at Sabres.com for a limited time. These packages include one Jeanneret talking bobblehead, two 300 Level tickets to see the Sabres host the Boston Bruins on Feb. 25 and an exclusive meet-and-greet with Jeanneret prior to the game.
The bobblehead is presented by Buffalo-based contracting company John W. Danforth.
“We are so grateful to our longtime friends at the Buffalo Sabres and John W. Danforth for helping to raise funds and awareness of Kevin Guest House with this one-of-a-kind Rick Jeanneret bobblehead,” said Lynsey Zimdahl Weaver, executive director of Kevin Guest House. “Keeping families close is the best medicine, and it's our mission to provide a comfortable and supportive home away from home. As we take on our first-ever expansion to double the number of guests we can serve, these funds will allow us to support more patients and caregivers traveling for critical medical care.”
