ENHANCED SECURITY PROCEDURES IMPLEMENTED AT FIRST NIAGARA CENTER

All fans entering arena will be subject to magnetometer (wand) screening

BUFFALO, N.Y. (November 11, 2013) — The Buffalo Sabres today announced that enhanced security procedures have been put in place at First Niagara Center. Beginning with Tuesday’s home game against the Los Angeles Kings, all Sabres fans entering the arena will be subject to a handheld magnetometer (wand) screening upon entry to the arena.

The handheld magnetometers have been in use on a limited basis at the arena since last season as part of gradual and pre-planned efforts to enhance security for games and events. However, to further comply with league-wide security policies mandated by the National Hockey League, the magnetometer screening has been expanded to include all patrons of First Niagara Center.

Fans attending games and events at First Niagara Center are encouraged to arrive early to ensure orderly entry into the arena.
