The Buffalo Bills, the Buffalo Sabres and now, the Buffalo Beauts — they are now all part of the Pegula empire!
The announcement came Thursday morning, stating Terry and Kim Pegula had acquired the National Women’s Hockey League (NWHL) team.
“We want to contribute to the growth of women’s hockey,” Kim Pegula said. “HarborCenter has allowed us to make a positive impact on the game at the amateur, high school and collegiate levels, and we believe this is the perfect time to expand our reach to include women’s professional hockey through the NWHL. This sport provides outstanding opportunities, and we are committed to helping extend those opportunities to females of all ages.”
The Pegulas purchased the Sabres in 2011 and opened HarborCenter three years later. The Beauts are one of the original NWHL teams, created back in 2015.
