The Black and Gold will roll out a roster mixed with veterans, including Brandon Carlo and Matt Grzelyck, and prospects to take on their Atlantic Division rivals.

Will Boston have the opportunity to see former Bruins blue-liner Connor Clifton in the game?

Boston will have to wait until the regular season to see Clifton in a Buffalo uniform after he signed with the Sabres as a free agent on July 1, since the two clubs only meet once in the preseason.

The Quinnipiac University product spent five seasons in Boston, participating in 232 games for the Black and Gold. Last season he tallied five goals and 18 assists.
