Sabres unveil locker room renovation plans

The Buffalo Sabres and their design firm studied the best locker rooms and training facilities of other NHL teams. Now they say they're ready to create a space that's even better.

The Sabres unveiled their HSBC Arena renovation plans today in the arena. The Sabres' facilities will expand from 8,644 square feet to 15,220, a boost they feel will help them with everything from player recruitment to better breakfasts.

"We've actually done quite a bit of benchmarking with other teams in the league to see what the best of the best is, and we feel like we'll be providing something even better than that," said Keith Alf, the project manager for Cannon Design.

Demolition will start next week, and the renovation is expected to be done by the opening of training camp in September.
