With the National Lacrosse League's labor impasse settled, the Buffalo Bandits have announced an open practice for Saturday at KeyBank Center.
Practice is scheduled for 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. with an autograph session at the conclusion of practice. The event is free with general admission seating. Parking will be free in the KeyBank Center garage.
The Bandits will host a question-and-answer session during practice with players, coaches and team personnel on the video board as well as a garage sale with the chance to purchase memorabilia and the annual select-a-seat promotion.
The league and the Professional Lacrosse Players' Association announced a five-year agreement Saturday.
Games from the first two weeks of the season were canceled during the labor dispute, meaning the Bandits' scheduled opener is Dec. 15 at Philadelphia. According to a report from Jake Elliott, the league's play-by-play announcer, the plan is for the two games to be added to the end of the schedule to retain an 18-game regular season.
