Report: Announcement of Sabres Sale Coming


BUFFALO, N.Y. (WGRZ)—A source close to the situation tells 2 On Your Side’s Scott Brown that the sale of the Buffalo Sabres to Pennsylvania billionaire Terry Pegula is expected to be announced at some point after the World Juniors Championship wraps up next week.

We’re told the timing of the announcement is being dictated by Sabres owner Tom Golisano.

Golisano may come to Buffalo for the tournament next week, and doesn’t want an announcement regarding the sale of the team detracting attention from the tournament, which is a point of pride for the Sabres’ organization.

Our source says that Golisano has reached an agreement in principle for the sale of the team to Pegula.
