ALUMNI GAME ROSTERS
Former Amerks Chris Palmer and Paul Brydges each scored two goals, and former Amerk head coach Randy Cunneyworth added a goal. Scoring for the Sabres alumni was Danny Gare, Andrew Peters, and Rob Ray.
Tom Askey and Kenton Rein split time in between the pipes for the Amerks alumni, while the recently retired former Sabre and Amerk Martin Biron manned the net for the Buffalo squad.
Prior to the game, Sabres and Amerks alumni alike met in the left field concourse for a Meet & Greet with the fans.
