Harborcenter, the new hockey-and-some-other-stuff-too development in downtown Buffalo, is coming along swimmingly. In fact, they’ve hoisted the last piece of structural steel into place and they’re planning to have “phase one” of construction complete by the end of October.
One problem — this is going to be the new home ice for the Canisius Golden Griffins, and the college hockey season begins in _early_ October.
Fortunately, they have an agreement in place; if Canisius has any home games that need to be played before their rink is complete and ready to go, they can play them on the Sabres home ice in FNC. I’m honestly kind of hoping it comes to that. How much of a thrill would that be for these guys to play on an NHL rink?
