"Interning with the Buffalo Sabres this year was an incredible experience. I have learned so much valuable information throughout the season and have loved getting to experience many different work opportunities along the way. While working in youth hockey, seeing the difference we make in the kids lives and having them say things like "this is the best day ever" and seeing the smiles on their faces is so rewarding after spending such a short period of time with them."

 * - Jenna Lukomski, Community Relations 22-23 Season*

"From the beginning, I was offered various hands-on opportunities to contribute to each team's website and social media channels. I also developed and utilized many valuable skills and had the opportunity to learn more about the industry as a whole. I loved having the chance to be right in the middle of all the action, whether I was shooting video from the glass or was interviewing players in the locker room for a story. I felt supported and trusted by many people in the organization and I know that I will benefit from these relationships and experiences in the future."
