The Buffalo Sabres announced the team is selling a limited number of winter hats, known as "Tyler's Toques," to benefit the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy. The Tyler Myers-themed toques also come with a Myers autographed player card and pin, as well as a one-year membership to the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy.
"I'm very excited to support the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy through the 'Tyler's Toques' program," Myers said. "Our parks are an important part of Buffalo, and I'm proud that the money raised from this program will help sustain them."
"Tyler's Toques" cost $35 and can be purchased online or at the Sabres Store in First Niagara Center. All online orders can be picked up in person at the Sabres Store, or shipped for an additional $10 shipping and handling fee.
Also available for purchase are 100 limited-edition "Tyler's Toques" VIP packages for $100 each. VIP packages will include all of the above items, as well as two 300-Level tickets to the Buffalo Sabres vs. New York Islanders game Feb. 8, 2015, and a meet-and-greet with Myers.

The Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy is a not-for-profit, membership-based, community organization whose mission is to promote, preserve, restore, enhance and maintain the Frederick Law Olmsted-designed parks and parkways in the Greater Buffalo area for current and future generations. America's first landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted, designed the parks more than 145 years ago.
Olmsted designed parks in nearly every major city in the country. However, his work in Buffalo - the first park and parkway system designed and built in the U.S. - is considered his very best. Basic maintenance of the parks has been greatly improved with universal respect and admiration for the work the conservancy has accomplished over the past six years since the 2004 groundbreaking agreement with the City of Buffalo and Erie County. Since that time, the Olmsted Parks Conservancy, now partnering with Buffalo, has retained full responsibility for the management and maintenance of these green spaces, which are listed on the national and state registers of historic places.
