The Buffalo Sabres announced today they will be holding their annual summer development camp from July 8-13 at First Niagara Center. This will mark the first time the ice will be installed during the summer and the development camp will be held at the home of the Sabres.
There will be an on-ice session each day open to the public Monday through Wednesday from 10:00 am -12:30 p.m. The week will culminate in a Blue and Gold scrimmage game on Thursday, July 12 at 6 p.m. Tickets for the scrimmage will be $10 for general admission seating. Tickets will be available at the First Niagara Center box office starting today at 4 p.m.
The camp will feature approximately 38 Sabres prospects, including the team’s 2012 NHL Draft picks, all of whom are scheduled to participate in the six-day camp. The players will take part in both on-ice and off-ice workouts. The goals of the camp are to show prospective players the fundamental ideas of the Sabres’ playing system and expose them to the conditioning programs of an NHL player. Camp participants will also study and examine NHL rules and the successful techniques a player must possess to become a professional athlete.
The following tentative schedule of on-ice workouts is open to the public at First Niagara Center. All times are subject to change and any updates will be posted at Sabres.com.
