Sabres to host prospects tournament again in September

Alexander Nylander’s first game action in a Buffalo uniform is just six weeks away, as the Sabres will host the “Prospects Challenge” tournament from Sept. 16-19 at HarborCenter, the team announced this morning.

Nylander, the talented Swedish winger drafted eighth overall June 24, will almost certainly participate in the three-team, round-robin tournament, which also includes the Boston Bruins and New Jersey Devils.

The Sabres started the tournament last season.

The game schedule:

Sept. 17, Buffalo vs. New Jersey, 7 p.m.

Sept. 18, Boston vs. New Jersey, 7 p.m.

Sept. 19, Buffalo vs. Boston, 7 p.m.

Tickets cost $10 and go on sale at 10 a.m. on Wednesday.
