A rinkrat for a large chunk of his life, Kris Baker has spent the last decade covering the Buffalo Sabres prospects 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 television venues.
In 2012, Baker co-hosted an online chat for the Buffalo News in preparation for the NHL draft. In 2013 and 2014, he was a featured analyst for WGR 550's live draft coverage. In 2014, he contributed Sabres prospects content for WGRZ-TV (NBC) and 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 Time 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.
