The league's expansion team in 2012-13 will be known as the Belfast Surge Energy Sabres. The team previously indicated it would use Belfast Surge to go along with it's title sponsor, Surge Energy, as the team's name. It will now use the Sabres nickname as well to coincide with Belfast Minor Hockey's nickname and the team name from prior seasons.
The colour scheme and jersey design will be similar to that of the San Jose Sharks of the NHL.
The Sabres will open up their season on Friday night in Tignish.
