The Buffalo Sabres have announced they will open training camp Sept. 12 as veterans report to KeyBank Center for testing, physicals and media interviews. On-ice sessions open Sept. 13.
In their first camp under coach Ralph Krueger, the bulk of the team's work will be held in the downtown arena but much of that will be closed to the public. The three public sessions are 10 to 11:15 a.m. and 1 to 2:15 p.m. at KeyBank Center on Sept. 15, as well as 11 a.m. to noon Sept. 26 and 27 in Harborcenter.
The Sabres open the preseason Sept. 16 against Pittsburgh at Penn State's Pegula Ice Arena. That game will be streamed in the Sabres' TV markets on Sabres.com, and so will the game in Columbus the next night.
The two home preseason games on the schedule (Sept. 20 vs. Toronto and Sept. 25 vs. Columbus) will both air on MSG, as will the preseason finale Sept. 28 at Pittsburgh.
