News and Notes from the Buffalo Sabres

The Buffalo Sabres are one of the many teams that are in the NHL COVID protocol.

There were nine players as well as their Head Coach Ralph Krueger.

Thus far the Sabres have been bringing in the players have been assigned on how to train on their own until everyone passes quarantine.

The team as a whole has been trying to figure out new ways to train like setting up sheets of synthetic ice to each player’s home, so that way they do not lose the legs that they were able to build during the early part of the season.

Thanks to the synthetic ice the guys are now able to work on their stickhandling skills, and in addition the players have been given stationary bikes which assist with their endurance training.

The players have also been reviewing a ton of video, which has been used to see what the team has been doing well during the first 10 games of the team’s season.

There have been some practices held at KeyBank Center, which has been held by assistant coach Steve Smith. There have been three sessions, which have been geared to conditioning and skill drills.

Buffalo can also make the call to their minor league team in Rochester to round out the roster and add more bodies. If the team does this, it will allow them to have two days to get ready for their next game against the New York Islanders at KeyBank Center on Monday.

There will be a lot happening for the Sabres in the next few days, so fans are encouraged to stay tuned for more information.
