The Mascot Before Sabretooth

Who was the Buffalo Sabres mascot before Sabretooth? I haven’t lived long enough to know anyone but Sabretooth as the Buffalo Sabres mascot and heard for the first time this weekend that there was actually a different mascot before him.

Sammy Sabre.

Sammy Sabre was replaced by Sabretooth in the mid 1980s as the marketing team of the Sabres tried to match the success that the Buffalo Bisons were having with their mascot, Buster Bison. Sabretooth was actually the mascot for the Buffalo Bandits from 1992 until 1998 as well.
