“If there is such a thing as a dream job this is it for me.”
Buffalo Sabres broadcaster Brian Duff has been seemingly everywhere in northern North America. Since the age of 19 when Duff first moved from the greater Toronto area to Calgary, he has moved 15 times and lived in 8 cities. None however have felt more like home than Buffalo.
“We haven’t even moved to Buffalo yet, but I can tell you that whenever the plane landed on our return trip from a road city last season, I always felt like I was home,” said Duff. “That’s a feeling you can’t put a value on.”
Known for his role as host of the NHL Network’s nightly highlight show, NHL on the Fly, Duff joined the Sabres last season as the part-time pregame, postgame, and intermission host for games that Kevin Sylvester did the team’s play by play. To him, it was the perfect situation.
