"Forging a Connection: Your Buffalo Sabres 1970-1975" features items from the club's early days that features items from the collection of the Buffalo Hockey Experience + Museum. The collection includes Tim Horton's No. 2 jersey from his final home Sabres game, Roger Crozier's goalie stick from the 1975 Stanley Cup Finals and numerous newspapers, photos and other rare items.
“The Buffalo Sabres have become part of the fabric of Western New York. 'Forging a Connection' will bring the early years of the franchise to life for fans. It will give fans of all ages the opportunity to relive wonderful memories and pass on the history of the team to younger fans.” said Joe Gambacorta, founder of the Buffalo Hockey Experience.
The Sabres joined the NHL as an expansion team with the Vancouver Canucks in 1970. Their first draft pick was Hall of Fame forward Gilbert Perreault. They played for the Stanley Cup five seasons later.
The exhibit runs through May 25. The museum is at 1 Museum Court in Buffalo.
