Buffalo, NY (WBEN) With the Sabres and USA Hockey keeping a tight lid on Tuesday's announcement, we've been looking into what could be the major event taking place at First Niagara Center.
Steve Manson of WNY Hockey Magazine says there are several possibilities. "The big one would be the return of the World Junior Championship, but I don't think that's likely because Toronto and Montreal will host it in 2015 and 2017, and it would be too soon to bring it back to Buffalo," says Manson. Another possibility is the return of the Prospects Game or something to do with HarborCenter.
"USA Hockey could announce initiatives with the Sabres to hold some programs in that building," says Manson of HarborCenter. "I know USA Hockey is looking to the new building and looking to move some programs into (HarborCenter)."
He says the relationship between the Sabres and USA Hockey has been strong over the years.
