About Us

Written By Kris Baker on Saturday, January 19, 2008 | 1/19/2008

A rinkrat for a large chunk of his life, Kris Baker has spent the last decade covering the Buffalo Sabres prospects online for various media outlets.

In January of 2008, Baker created SabresProspects.com with a mission of providing daily prospect updates in hopes of making the topic more accessible for fans. Since then, Baker’s work has been featured on the Buffalo Sabres official website, WGR550.com, yahoo.com , and other mainstream venues.

In 2012, he co-hosted an online chat for the Buffalo News in preparation for the NHL draft. In 2013, he was a featured analyst for WGR 550's live draft coverage. In 2014, he contributed Sabres prospects content for WIVB-TV (CBS) in Buffalo.

You can hear Kris weekly during the season on Sabres Hockey Hotline hosted by Kevin Sylvester (WGR 550 AM), as well as his appearances on The Howard Simon Show. Baker randomly appears on The Enforcers, a weekly television show co-hosted by former Sabres toughguy Andrew Peters, while also serving as a college hockey color analyst for Tim Warner Cable Sports.

Kris attended the University of Maryland (GO TERPS!) and currently resides in sunny Orchard Park, NY. Away from the pucks, he enjoys playing golf, watching MMA, and enjoying the lovely combination of pub food and craft beers. He is a noted hop head, so be sure to send him tips on tasty new IPAs.

You can reach Kris on Twitter @SabresProspects or via email at bakes@sabresprospects.com.

Any way to donate money to help your efforts? I get plenty of entertainment from your daily email updates and periodic roster reports and would happily support this site.

If not, keep up the good work my man!

Your comment is greatly appreciated. Always great to hear from folks who love this stuff as much as I do. The site will always function without subscriptions, but donations are accepted in the right-hand column to help offset some off the costs of content management.

Thanks again for the message.

Kris
