Buffalo Sabres Team History


The Buffalo Sabres were formed in 1970 by local businessmen Seymour and Northrup Knox. The Knox's hired former Toronto Maple Leafs coach and general manager Punch Imlach, as the coach and general manager. The nickname Sabres was selected in 1969 in a local contest that saw over thirteen thousand suggestions. The team would play in a revamped Buffalo Auditorium, The Aud - which was enlarged to hold the larger crowds. In their first season the Buffalo Sabres finished with 24 wins and 63 points.
