Sabres name Pominville captain


‘”It’s an honor to represent the team and the guys on and off the ice and I think this year is going to be a great year for us but to make that happen we have to hold each other accountable,” Pominville said after coach Lindy Ruff presented him his jersey. “We have to push each other to be better every game, regardless of whether you have a letter on your jersey or not. With the committment (owners) Terry and Kim Pegula have made to the team, the city and to the guys here, it’s our turn to give back to them and there’s no better place to do it than in Buffalo.”‘
