Women's under-18 world championship coming to Buffalo; sledge hockey announcement also today

By John Vogl

The Sabres want HarborCenter to be home to as many tournaments as it can host, and at least one will be announced this morning.

USA Hockey will hold an 11 a.m. news conference in First Niagara Center, and the organization will unveil Buffalo as the host city for the 2015 women's under-18 world championship, according to a source. Budapest, Hungary, hosted this year's event in March.

The international sledge hockey federation has announced that it, too, will be part of the news conference. Its role has yet to be determined. The organization is soliciting bids for its 2015 "B Pool" world championships, so it's possible the "A Pool" will come to Buffalo.
