The Buffalo Sabres have announced that they have teamed up with Perry’s Ice Cream for the fourth annual Shoot! Score! Read More! program. The program is designed to visit various elementary schools across Western New York to promote and encourage good reading habits among first, second, and third grade students.
One Sabres player will visit each school, along with Sabretooth to read the book “Hat Tricks Count” by Matt Napier.
