"I've had the good fortune of being involved with many start-ups in my career but nothing that can have an impact quite like this. Operation Backbone will really take shape here in Buffalo, in part through the efforts of the Sabres. My hope and belief is that it won't be long before all NHL clubs recognize the benefits of Operation Backbone for their own communities."
