The eighth annual Tim Horton's Backyard Classic Hockey Tournament, to benefit The Buffalo Sabres Sled Hockey Team, has been postponed once again, this time due to poor ice conditions.

This weekend's charity event, which was moved to the Angry Buffalo at the Rose Garden in Lancaster, was originally scheduled for February 26th through February 28th, but was postponed due to heavy rainfall in the days leading up to the tournament.

Chris Taggart, the Backyard Classic's chairman, said the tournament will be held in late March at a major hockey venue.
