The Buffalo Sabres have announced that they will hold their second annual Fan Appreciation Night, presented by ADPRO Sports and Connors & Ferris, at the team’s home game against Pittsburgh on Friday, March 30. The night will include a pre-game plaza party, Sabres player awards, and giveaways on and off the ice.
Pre-game activities will begin at 5 p.m. with live music at the plaza party. Once fans head inside, they can take advantage of family-friendly food prices from 5:30 to 6:30 at arena concession stands. Special Fan Appreciation Night merchandise prices will be in effect at the Sabres Store throughout the night.
The Buffalo Sabres 50/50 Raffle to benefit the Alumni and Sabres foundations will have a guaranteed pot of $25,000 and the team will give away prizes throughout the game. Also returning is last year’s popular “Jersey Off My Back” promotion, in which each player on the team will meet a fan on the ice after the game to give away the jersey he wore during the game. Lindy Ruff will join the team for the giveaway this year, with one lucky fan receiving a “game-worn” tie from the head coach.
On-ice festivities before the game will include player awards, voted on by Buffalo Sabres players and coaches. Players will be presented with the Unsung Hero award, the First Niagara Rookie of the Year award and the New Era Most Valuable Player award. The team will also announce the winner of the 7th Man Award, presented by ADPRO Sports and Connors & Ferris. All Sabres fans are eligible for this award, and can submit their applications by filling out the form below.
