The Buffalo Sabres will roll out the blue and gold carpet before the team's preseason game this Saturday, Sept. 21, against the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Pre-game festivities will take place in Alumni Plaza, which sits directly outside First Niagara Center, beginning at 4:30 p.m. Fans will be able to gather in the plaza and enjoy music and beverages as they watch their favorite players walk the carpet prior to the game.
The players will be arriving in cars donated by Northtown Automotive Group and will be dropped off in the plaza throughout the event. Sabres broadcasters Brian Duff and Danny Gare will host the event, providing interviews with the players as they arrive at the arena.
Parking for the event will be available in the surface lots surrounding the arena.
