New Jersey and TV Schedule


The Buffalo Sabres officially announced they will unveil their third jersey in an open practice on September 20 at HSBC Arena.  They also confirmed that it will be a newer more modern version of their vintage blue jersey. 

When the Sabres hit the ice for their first full practice of the season, fans will get their first look at the team’s new third jersey that will make its debut during the 2008-09 NHL season. The jersey features a modernization of the team’s vintage design elements, while incorporating the latest in sports uniform technology. Fans will be able to pre-order the new jersey at a kiosk in the Sabres Store.

I can only imagine that the Sabres would prefer that they could wear white at home, in order to make their white jersey the third jersey.
