The Rochester Amerks announced a three-game preseason schedule Tuesday, highlighted by their annual exhibition contest in HarborCenter.
The Amerks will open their schedule by meeting the defending Calder Cup champion Toronto Marlies at 7:05 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 27 in the Sabres' downtown Buffalo practice facility. It will be the front end of a home-and-home series, as the teams meet Sept. 29 in Frank Doherty Arena in Thorold, Ont.
Tickets for the HarborCenter game go on sale Wednesday morning at 10 a.m. at the KeyBank Center box office as well as tickets.com and Amerks.com. Tickets are $10 for general admission and $5 for Amerks and Sabres season ticket holders.
Rochester's final preseason game is Sept. 30 vs. Syracuse at the Gene Polisseni Center on the campus of Rochester Institute of Technology. The Amerks open the regular season Oct. 5 against Charlotte in Blue Cross Arena.
Many of Rochester's players will be at HarborCenter next week for the Sabres annual Prospects Challenge. That begins Sept. 7 with a 7:05 p.m. game against prospects from the New Jersey Devils.
