This year’s Labatt Blue Buffalo Pond Hockey Tournament saw The Sled Hockey Foundation (SHF) staff a promotional table and host a special exhibition game featuring the Buffalo Sabres senior sled hockey team. Showing off this physical and intense, sit-down version of the game at RiverWorks, in front of the large audience the venue provides, was a special opportunity to raise awareness of the sport, the Foundation, and its mission.
