Western New York

Do you need a reason to visit Western New York – the Niagara-Buffalo area specifically?  Do you love hockey of all levels but the higher the level the better?  Stay tuned!  Your reason may appear this afternoon as USA Hockey holds a press conference in Buffalo.

Both The Buffalo News and The Niagara Gazette reported Saturday that USA Hockey, the top governing body for hockey in the US will hold a press conference at HSBC Arena today.  In attendance will be Sabres owner B Thomas Golisano, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and a representative from USA Hockey.  It is anticipated that the announcement will tell the world that the 2010-11 World Junior Hockey Championships will be played at HSBC Arena in downtown Buffalo and Dwyer Arena on the campus of Niagara University.  Buffalo is one of three finalists for this prestigious tournament, competing with Minneapolis and Grand Forks, ND for the honor.  The tournament is a ten day tourney that features the best 20 and under players in the world.

So, if you’re a hockey fan, stay tuned.  If you are looking for a reason to visit Western NY, stay tuned.
