The Sabres have officially confirmed that Terry Pegula's introductory press conference will be held Tuesday at 11 a.m in the atrium of HSBC Arena. No surprise there. That's been the scuttlebutt the last few days.
The extra piece is that NHL commissioner Gary Bettman will be on hand to welcome the league's newest owner. Bettman was here in 2003 when Tom Golisano completed his purchase of the team from the league, which ran the franchise during the bankruptcy era. This one will certainly a much happier day for the commish with the Sabres' future in Buffalo now locked in for decades to come.
The Sabres' release says Pegula will not be making any public comments about his purchase from Golisano until tomorrow's presser.
