Penguins And Sabres Set For Another NHL Preseason Meeting At Pegula Ice Arena

by on June 18, 2019 1:10 PM

Pegula Ice Arena will once again host an NHL preseason game as the Buffalo Sabres will make their third trip in the past four seasons, this time to face the Pittsburgh Penguins in a rematch of their 2017 meeting at Pegula.

The Penguins will serve as the visiting team when the puck drops on Monday, September 16 at 7 p.m.

“We appreciate the Buffalo Sabres' willingness to once again host a preseason contest in Pegula Ice Arena,” Assistant Athletic Director Michael Cross said in a press release. “Partnering with the organization for the third time in four years is a very special opportunity for Hockey Valley. Terry and Kim Pegula's continued support of this unique tradition at college hockey's best venue promises to be another memorable event.”

The Sabres are 1-1 in the previous two games at Pegula, falling to the Minnesota Wild, 2-1, on a power-play goal by Jason Zucker with just 4.6 seconds remaining in the first-ever contest back in 2016. In the 2017 meeting the Sabres defeated the Stanley Cup Champion Penguins 4-3 as Jack Eichel scored in overtime winner just 25 seconds into the extra period.

“Our organization is excited to return to Penn State this fall to face the Penguins,” Sabres General Manager Jason Botterill said. “We know the atmosphere at Pegula Ice Arena will be loud and we look forward to putting on a great show for all of the NHL fans in Hockey Valley.”

Ticket pricing and sale dates, as well as parking information will be announced at a later date.
