Sabres tell AP they've submitted proposal to host NHL's annual pre-draft scouting combine

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Buffalo Sabres president Ted Black tells The Associated Press the team has submitted a proposal to host the NHL's annual pre-draft scouting combine for at least the next three years.

Black says the bid was submitted on Friday and the team has been working on its proposal for two years to replace Toronto as the combine's host.

The NHL opened the bidding process for the first time this year after the Sabres lobbied to host the annual May event to coincide with the opening of HarborCenter, a $172 million hockey and entertainment complex. HarborCenter's construction was paid for by Sabres owner Terry Pegula, and will feature two rinks and a full-service hotel connected to the team's downtown arena.

The deadline for bids is Monday.
