Behind The Bench: Season starts for new-look Sabres

Oct 4, 2018

The Buffalo Sabres kick off the 2018-19 season with a home game against the Boston Bruins Thursday night. On the season premiere of WBFO's Behind The Bench, Sabres reporter Bill Hoppe talks about the team's revamped roster, which includes #1 overall draft pick Rasmus Dahlin, top line forward Jeff Skinner and new goaltender Carter Hutton, among others. Also, Jack Eichel gets the captain's 'C' on his jersey and Bill gives his prediction on whether the Sabres, who finished in last place in the NHL last season, will make the playoffs for the first time since 2011.
