The Sabres annual summer development camp will be held July 6-12, 2016. This year, all on-ice sessions will be held at HARBORCENTER (whereas the last four camps were held at First Niagara Center).
The hightlights of camp will be an intra-squad Blue & Gold Scrimmage on Saturday, July 9 at 1 p.m. (General admission tickets are available online for $20) and The French Connection Tournament, an intra-squad 3-on-3 tournament beginning at 9:15 a.m. on the final day of camp on Tuesday, July 12 (General admission tickets are available online for $10).
