You may remember hearing about Da Beauty League last summer. It's a 4-on-4 hockey league that takes place in Edina, Minnesota, and features many NHL players, including the likes of Zach Parise, Brock Boeser, James van Riemsdyk, Dustin Byfuglien, etc.

Last season, Kyle Okposo played in Da Beauty League, helping him get back on the ice after his health issues at the end of the 2017 season. Zach Bogosian was among other Sabres that also played last year.

This year, the Sabres have five players that will participate. Casey Mittelstadt will play for BIC Razors, Zach Bogosian and Amerks goaltender Adam Wilcox will play for Team Tria, and Casey Nelson and C.J. Smith will play for Walser Auto Group.

A few former Sabres will be playing as well, including Drew Stafford, Chris Butler, and recently traded forward Hudson Fasching.

In Da Beauty League, teams compete for the John Scott Cup. There are a couple differences from NHL hockey. One being that Da Beauty League has two 23-minute halves of 4-on-4 hockey.

If you're interested in getting a look at Mittelstadt, Nelson, Bogosian, etc. games are streamed at Games are only played on Wednesdays in July and August.
