"As of 12:01 a.m. this morning, the National Hockey League announced a work stoppage applicable to all NHL clubs, including the Buffalo Sabres.

"Option 1: At the end of each month, the Sabres will refund any games that are cancelled by the NHL. For example, on Oct. 1, the Sabres will refund all preseason games that were cancelled by the NHL in the month of September. The refund process will be communicated to our season ticket holders and mini pack ticket holders (via email and/or mail) if and when games have been cancelled by the NHL.
"Option 2: The Sabres will offer season ticket holders and mini pack ticket holders 4% simple interest per annum on the value of the games that are cancelled by the NHL.
