History

This franchise was established in Buffalo, New York in 1975 when the Buffalo Jr. Sabres joined the New York/Pennsylvania Junior Hockey League. The team continued in various leagues including: The Western New York Junior Hockey League, The North American Junior Hockey League and the Golden Horseshoe Junior B Hockey League before suspending operations for one season after the 1985-1986 season. In the 1987-1988 season the team began operating again headed by Kris Hicks (Head Coach) and Chuck Giambra (General Manager). They were now known as the Niagara Scenic and were playing a full schedule in the North American Hockey League. The team moved to the Eastern Junior Hockey league for the 1994-1995 season and then joined the Metro Junior A Hockey League beginning in 1995-1996. After the Metro folded, the Scenics became the Buffalo Lightning and moved to the OPJHL. In 2005, the Lightning made a deal with the National Hockey League's Buffalo Sabres to have them take up the name "Junior Sabres" again and wear the Sabres' old Blue and Gold jerseys.
