After visiting a few arenas, the Key Bank Center is wonderful. It's really nice looking, well laid out and all of the staff was very friendly. Centrally located with transportation easily accessed nearby. We would definitely consider travelling here for another hockey game or concert.

Big, spacious venue. Well organized and there are little to no line up if you go to the less busy sides. Always a great time!

First time in the new Key Bank Arena. We went on Sat March 17, 2018 for a 1:00 NHL hockey game. The Buffalo Sabres hosted the Chicago Blackhawks (BUF 4 CHI 3). This game was a sellout from our point of view. This 22 y.o....More

Waiting outside in the back of the arena where the players arrive is your best bet. When I was younger, I used to wait out in that area and I was lucky enough to get some autographs.
