The Buffalo Sabres have revealed new retro-inspired featuring a refreshed primary logo design.
The new primary logo claims to have been simplified from the original, with silver outlines removed in order to create a “sleek modern” look; the buffalo’s legs and hooves now also have sharper edges, while the head area says goodbye to a ear-hole that previously sat between the eye and horn.
