The Buffalo Sabres are a National Hockey League team based in Buffalo, New York.
The Buffalo Sabres joined the NHL in the 1970-71 season, owned by Seymour and Northrop Knox, scions of a family long prominent in Western New York. They picked the nickname because a sabre had long been considered a weapon carried by a leader. The Knoxes had tried twice before to get an NHL team; first in the 1967 round of expansion, then unsuccessfully attempting to buy the Oakland Seals with the intent of moving them to Buffalo. Buffalo had been a hotbed for minor-league hockey, and the Buffalo Bisons had been one of the pillars of the American Hockey League, winning the Calder Cup in their final year before yielding to the Sabres.
