The Buffalo Sabres are giving away tickets as part of a blood drive they're hosting Feb. 10.
The event runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the First Niagara Center. Anyone who makes an appointment and keeps it gets two tickets to an upcoming game. Appointment-keepers also get locker room tours.
Sabres alumni will be on hand to sign autographs, as will mascot Sabretooth. Free snacks and beverages will also be provided. The drive benefits Upstate New York Transplant Services.
Giveaways and other promotions have been a theme throughout a disappointing season for the Sabres. They're averaging 18,466 tickets sold per game, but the 19,070-seat arena has been far emptier than that most nights as people abandon their seats. The Sabres averaged 18,970 tickets sold per game last season.
