Sabres open up Season Today

Brandon Hess- We are roughly 4 and half hours (at 1:30pm EST) away from the puck dropping in Helsinki, Finland where the Buffalo Sabres will open up their 2011-2012 season as the home team against the Anaheim Ducks. Last night at the team dinner Lindy Ruff announced the team captains, with Jason Pominville receiving the honor of wearing the "C" and Paul Gaustad, Thomas Vanek, Derek Roy, and Drew Stafford being named alternates. Tonight's scratches are Matt Ellis and Mike Weber, meaning M.A. Gragnani will get the nod on defense. Check back Monday as I'll have a recap of the Sabres opening European games, as well as a look forward to the rest of the October schedule.

  1. I was kinda expecting Regehr to wear a letter but I guess since he is a pretty new addition to the team, Ruff wouldn't want to give him that role. He will be a good role model for your young players though. How has he been this pre-season?
