Buffalo Sabres announce 2018 Fan Appreciation events


Mon, Mar 26th 2018 04:30 pm
The Buffalo Sabres have announced plans for the team's annual Fan Appreciation celebration, which will take place during the team's final home and road games of the 2017-18 season.
For the regular-season home finale against the Ottawa Senators on April 4 (7:30 p.m.), the Sabres will host Fan Appreciation Night presented by ADPRO Sports. As part of giveaways at the game, KeyBank will provide every fan in attendance with a Dominik Hasek bobblehead as they enter the arena. Hasek was chosen as the bobblehead giveaway by a fan vote earlier this season.
Other team sponsors will be providing additional prizes for "Lucky Row Giveaways," including (716) Food and Sport, Healthy Scratch, Moe's Southwest Grill, Perry's Ice Cream, Tim Hortons, Wegmans and La Nova, who will provide an entire section with a voucher for a free pizza. In addition, KeyBank has invited former KeyBank "Money Minute" contestants to attend the game and participate in a random drawing to win $5,000.
The fan-favorite "Jersey Off My Back" giveaway will also make its return to Fan Appreciation Night in 2018, with Sabres players presenting their game-worn, Winter Classic-themed jerseys to select season ticketholders after the game.
To select this year's Fan of the Year, the Sabres are asking fans for written or video submissions of themselves that best demonstrate their passion for the team. The contest is open now and closes at noon Friday, March 30. Fans can visit Sabres.com/fanoftheyear to submit their applications.
The winner of the Fan of the Year Award, presented by BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York, will be part of a ceremonial faceoff prior to the game. Winners of this season's player awards will also be announced as part of the pregame ceremony. Awards will include Sabres Foundation Man of the Year presented by Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, Unsung Hero presented by Labatt Blue, Rookie of the Year presented by Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort and Most Valuable Player presented by KeyBank.
The Sabres have also teamed with Moe's Southwest Grill to allow fans to choose the Moe's Hot Players for the final home game of the season. Starting Thursday, March 29, fans can visit the Buffalo Sabres Facebook page to vote for their favorite players. The top three votegetters will be chosen as the Moe's Hot Players for the game on April 4.
During the game, fans will be able to purchase hot dogs, soft pretzels, popcorn tubs and Sabres souvenir cups with soda for just $3 each. Additionally, the Sabres Store will be giving all fans 40 percent off their entire purchase during the game on April 4.
Fans tuned in to MSG for the team's final road game against the Florida Panthers on April 7 will also have a chance to win prizes throughout the broadcast when "Fan Appreciation Night Goes Digital." Registered My One Buffalo members will be able to access a form to enter the contest to win a variety of prizes, including a $500 "Key Possibilities" gift card courtesy of KeyBank, an overnight stay package from Buffalo Marriott HarborCenter and two tickets to the Sabres' 2018-19 home opener, and two round-trip tickets courtesy of Delta Air Lines.
To participate in this contest, fans can follow the link in the Sabres section of the My One Buffalo app, which will be available from the beginning of the pregame show through the end of the third period. Brian Duff will announce winners during both intermissions and the postgame show on MSG.
