Buffalo Junior Sabres move up to No. 8 in CJHL, set to host rival St. Michael's tonight

Michael Peca, while recently discussing the nationally recognized Buffalo Junior Sabres, said he sees a foundation for long-term success. He says the organization can grow to be as accomplished as a team like St. Michael's.

Tonight, the coach gets to see how this edition of the Junior Sabres stacks up against the model program.

The Junior Sabres, who moved up to No. 8 today in the Canadian Junior Hockey League national rankings, host St. Michael's at 7:30 tonight in Northtown Center at Amherst. The Buzzers earned an honorable mention in the CJHL poll, which includes 128 teams in 10 Junior A leagues across Canada.

The Junior Sabres and St. Michael's lead their respective divisions in the Ontario Junior Hockey League. Buffalo is atop the South West Conference's West Division with a 25-8-2 record. The Buzzers are 20-8-2 and lead the South Division.
