Award-winning series premieres on the network Nov. 13
The Buffalo Sabres today announced "Beyond Blue & Gold," an award-winning video series that takes fans behind the scenes of the Sabres organization, will begin airing on the NHL Network, with its premiere Wednesday, Nov. 13, at 8 p.m. The half-hour program currently has four airdates scheduled in November and December on the network.
"Beyond Blue & Gold" is an in-depth look at the Buffalo Sabres organization. It includes behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with the team's players, coaches and front office personnel. Cameras have been following the team since last season and have captured everything from offseason workouts, the NHL Entry Draft, rookie development camp and the buildup to the 2013-14 NHL season. The first season of "Beyond Blue & Gold," which contained 13 episodes spanning the duration of the 2012-13 NHL season, took home three Telly Awards in July.
Three episodes from the second season of the series, which encompass a time period of July to late August, were melded together for the episodes airing on NHL Network. The program is hosted by Sabres broadcaster Brian Duff and will largely cover the team's activity throughout the offseason and summer of 2013. Events included in the episode are: the 2013 NHL Entry Draft in New Jersey, the team's rookie development camp, and a trip to the 2013 NHL Prospect Tournament in Traverse City, Mich.
New episodes of "Beyond Blue & Gold" will premiere every few weeks on Sabres.com and the Buffalo Sabres' official YouTube channel.
