Last weekend, as part of a two-game series with the Chicago Mission in Chicago, the Bantam Tier I hockey team had a chance of a lifetime. They played their Sunday morning game outdoors at Soldier Field. The ice was in place from the Hockey City Classic collegiate event the day before.
This was the same field that just less than one year ago, former Sabres Jonathan Toews and Sidney Crosby faced off on during the 2014 Stadium Series game.
It was a beautiful morning for hockey, though the Sabres did not prove victorious as they lost to the Chicago Mission 3-2. Still, the experience was pretty special.
