FORT ERIE, ON. (WIVB) – The Buffalo Sabres invaded Canada Friday, taking over a Tim Hortons in Fort Erie.
Forward Cody Hodgson and Sabres alumnus Andrew Peters greeted fans, signed autographs and gave away prizes as part of the third annual “Invade Canada” campaign.
Sabres President Ted Black says the team started this tradition around the 200-year anniversary of the War of 1812.
“This is still the battleground of hearts and souls of hockey fans. But most importantly this is very much Sabres’ country. Political lines aside, we know this is a very strong fanbase and we love coming over here,” Black said.
