Sabres reach deal with Bell TV to broadcast 50 games in southern Ontario

BUFFALO, N.Y. - The Buffalo Sabres are expanding their television reach into Canada.

The team announced Wednesday that Bell TV has agreed to broadcast 50 Sabres games this season to its customers in southern Ontario. The Sabres have spent several years attempting to broaden their exposure into the neighbouring Niagara region, from which the team draws many fans.

Most Sabres games have previously been limited to being broadcast on U.S. cable networks not available in Canada. Sabres fans in Ontario instead had to purchase the NHL's Center Ice package to watch the team play.

Bell will not charge additional fees for broadcasting the games. The first broadcast will be Buffalo's home game against Columbus on Thursday.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
