The Sabres' television crew will soon be getting a new face. Brian Duff, who headlines "On the Fly" on the NHL Network, will join the telecasts as the game-night host for the broadcasts without Rick Jeanneret.
Kevin Sylvester normally handles the pregame, postgame and intermission duties, but he is sliding into the play-by-play role for 25 games as Jeanneret eases his travel schedule. When Sylvester is in the booth, Duff will take his spot downstairs.
Duff, a resident of the Toronto area, did broadcasting work for the Maple Leafs, Ottawa Senators and Edmonton Oilers prior to joining NHL Network.
