Forget about browsing Craigslist for the third time this week, the Buffalo Sabres will now be offering select games at a discounted price for college students. Starting with the Wednesday home game against the New Jersey Devils, students with valid ID can purchase the regularly priced $40 ticket for $20. The student seating will be in the 300 Level II, and only a limited number of tickets will be available.

Smart move Sabres, getting rid of extra tickets on low-selling nights to pumped-up college kids who will no doubt bring some energy to First Niagara Center. Other major market teams around the NHL are already taking part in similar “student rush” programs including the Pittsburgh Penguins and Detroit Red Wings. 

Tickets can be purchased online, but you must go in person to the box office to pick them up with your valid ID. Also to keep in mind, students will be limited to one ticket per ID. This is a pretty sweet deal for the financially burdened and incredibly studious college kids in the area. It almost makes me wish I had an upcoming bio-chemistry final to study for—almost.

Update: The Sabres have announced the rest of the games that will include this student ID deal. Check out the official list of dates on the Buffalo Sabres website.

As if you needed another reason to get pumped up, here is an epic Sabres video to get you in an electrifying mood.
