BUFFALO, NY - Buffalo Sabres forward Paul Gaustad and defenseman Mike Weber are joining the Buffalo Sabres Green team volunteers today to plant 50 trees around Riverside park in Buffalo. The program will be the first of many "green" initiatives for the Sabres this season.

The Sabres Green Team was started in 2007 and the program educates, informs, and activates Sabres fans to make a difference in their local community.
