 BUFFALO, N.Y. (June 27, 2011) --- The Buffalo Sabres today announced that registration is now open for Street HockeyFest 2011. The 10th annual street hockey tournament will take place Aug. 20 and 21, with play beginning at 9 a.m. on Perry Street in front of HSBC Arena.

The tournament is open to boys and girls ages 5-17 at a cost of $125 per team. Each team will consist of up to five players and will be guaranteed at least three games in the all-day, rain or shine event. Every player will also receive a Street HockeyFest t-shirt and hat.
