For nearly 75 years, Buffalonians have enjoyed professional hockey action at its finest. Before the Buffalo Sabres entered the National Hockey League in 1970, there were the Buffalo Bisons who played in the American Hockey League. Back then, the game of hockey was much different. The National Hockey League had just 6 teams. Competition was intense for "big league" spots. A player had to be the best to make it to the NHL. The battle for big league positions was often waged on the ice rinks of the American Hockey League teams. Some of the best professional hockey players of all time skated for the Herd.

"Before the Blade" has certainly been a labor of love over the years for me. I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to everyone who has embraced and continues to support this project since day one. If you grew up as a hockey fan in Buffalo before 1970 (before the Buffalo Sabres), you certainly remember the AHL Bisons and will absolutely find this a tribute to the Bisons' minor-league days fascinating. Hopefully, it will bring back good memories. There's lots of cool Bisons Hockey merchandise to choose from. We are always expanding this site, so please visit us again!
