Fred Stanfield

Stanfield, who entered the NHL with Chicago during the 1964-65 season, also played in Minnesota and Boston. He was an integral part of the Buffalo club that went to the Stanley Cup finals in 1975. He enjoyed playing for that team’s architect, former Sabre general manager Punch Imlach
Stanfield played 914 career NHL games, scoring 211 goals and 405 assists for 616 points
Can anyone say smooth transition?
     A veteran of 14 NHL seasons, Fred Stanfield retired from professional hockey in 1978. Since putting away the skates and sticks, Stanfield has proved to be as adept in the business arena as he was at the hockey rink. For the past two decades, the former Buffalo Sabre center has operated an office furniture business. What started as a modest business venture has blossomed into a major league operation.
     “We’ve been in business for 20 years,” Stanfield said. “It started with just myself and my wife. Now, there’s eight of us. We used to have one station wagon, now we have two trucks and a van. It’s been quite an experience.”
     Located at 4231 Transit Road in Clarence, Stanfield’s Office Furniture was situated in Amherst for the first 18 years of its existence.
