GUTCHECK: A LOOK AT A BRAND-NEW BEYOND BLUE & GOLD

by Michelle Girardi / Buffalo Sabres

It’s no secret that Western New York is proud of its indigenous culinary creations. Wings, weck, Weber’s…Where else would you rather be?

When Calgary native and goaltender Chad Johnson said that he wished he could travel around the country visiting renowned eateries, we knew he had to start by touring the famous fare in the 716.

No one likes to eat alone, so Chad enlisted his Swedish partner-in-net Linus Ullmark and both of their fiancées to sample the basics of Buffalo cuisine.

This crash course in becoming goalie gourmets of the Queen City will be featured in our next episode of Beyond Blue & Gold.
