Our Story

Buffalo Hockey Central is a passionate fan-driven site covering the Buffalo Sabres. Our mission is to report on the team, but also to provide opinion and analytical pieces focused on the Sabres and the National Hockey League.

We are not affiliated with the Buffalo Sabres in any way and do not pretend to be them or impersonate the team or the organization. We’re here to provide Sabres and hockey fans with unique content that they can’t get anywhere else.

Founded in 2008 by Kevin Freiheit, the site was originally called Sabres Hockey Central. 

The site was created as a hobby, but it quickly became much more than that. In the coming years, SHC would become bigger and better, earning press credentials and becoming a well-known source of Sabres info.

As 2017 hit, we formed a new group and switched over to what is now Buffalo Hockey Central. 

We continue to run this site because it’s something we enjoy doing, and we don’t profit off of this. There are a few ads on the site to help us keep this up and running. We hope you enjoy what you see on our site, and feel free to contact us if you have any questions or feedback.

Go Sabres!
