Buffalo - August 18, 2014 - At some point today, it is expected that the Buffalo Sabres will announce that the city will host the 2015 NHL Draft Combine.

Previously hosted in the greater Toronto area, the draft combine services as a platform for teams to gather to interview prospects as well as test their physical abilities over the course of several days.

The Sabres and NHL have called a press conference for Monday at 1:00 p.m. for a "major announcement". Those expected at the press conference are senior executive vice president of NHL Hockey Operations Colin Campbell, Sabres president Ted Black, president of HARBORCENTER John Koelmel, president and CEO of Kaleida Health Jody Lomeo and Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown.

It is also believed that the Sabres will be announcing that the city will host the 2016 NHL Draft as well. Big news for the Sabres and the city of Buffalo.

Set to open in the fall, the HARBOR Center is slated to be a state-of-the-art facility that will host combines and potentially events like the World Junior Championships.
