Sabres Celebrate Veterans, “11” On Veterans Day

The Buffalo Sabres will be commemorating Veterans Day by honoring members of our nation’s Armed Forces and celebrating the number 11 during the Nov. 11 game against Ottawa. The team will mark 11-11-11 by offering a special ticket package for the game and also by welcoming veterans from all over Western New York. The team’s legendary number 11 and Sabres Hall-of-Famer Gilbert Perreault will be in attendance at the game and will also host the tailgate tent party prior to the night’s contest.

Sabres players will also be warming up in special camouflage jerseys that will be auctioned off online at www.sabres.com with proceeds going to benefit the Buffalo Sabres Foundation. Before puck-drop, there will be a presentation of the Purple Heart to Chris Krieger, the founder of WNY Heroes.

Perreault will be hosting the pregame party at the Buffalo Sabres Tailgate Tent Party Presented by Labatt Blue Light. Perreault will visit with fans under the tent for the two-hour pregame party, which will also feature music and entertainment.

Participants in Nathan Gerbe’s ‘Tickets for Troops’ program will be watching the game from his suite and members of the Wounded Warriors sled hockey team will also be in attendance and watching the game from Thomas Vanek’s suite.
