2019 Buffalo Backyard Classic

The 2019 Buffalo Backyard Classic kicked off earlier today, Friday, March 1. Throughout the weekend, over 80 teams (children and adult) will be participating in the event, which is also a fundraiser for Roswell Park.

  • Full nets and goalies
  • All ages from 6U to Adult

Moments ago, the festivities began at Canalside with an Opening Ceremony and Skills Competition. Then, Saturday morning, the puck drops at 8am at The Ice @ Canalside – the games will take place throughout the day, with the action lasting until 4pm. Finally, on Sunday, players will take to the ice again, starting at 8am.

The charity tournament started in a backyard!

Hockey fans are encouraged to come on down to root for the players, or join in on the Open Skate – for every skater, Canalside will donate $1 to the cause. This is the 11th year that this event has taken place, and every year it gets bigger!

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
