    Governor Cuomo Welcomes Calgary Flames’ AHL Affiliate to Glens Falls


    Professional Hockey to return to the Civic Center; State funding supports the City’s Civic Center renovations to draw new American Hockey League franchise from British Columbia, Canada

     

    Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today welcomed the Calgary Flames’ American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate team to Glens Falls and its new home, the Civic Center. The American Hockey League’s Board of Governors has approved the relocation of the franchise owned by the Flames from Abbotsford, B.C., to Glens Falls, New York, beginning with the 2014-15 season.

    “We’ve seen in cities across the State – from Rochester and Syracuse to Utica – how a minor-league hockey affiliate can bring new energy, excitement, and jobs to local communities. New York State is thrilled that the Calgary Flames have chosen Glens Falls as home for their AHL affiliate,” Governor Cuomo said. “New York has become a national leader in hockey, with two teams from the state – Union College and Clarkson University – securing the top college championship trophies this year, and the New York Rangers currently in the middle of an exciting Stanley Cup playoff run. I welcome the Flames here to New York State, congratulate Mayor Diamond and General Manager Treliving on this accomplishment, and wish the team the best of luck on the ice.”

    Calgary Flames General Manager Brad Treliving said, “The Calgary Flames are dedicated to developing players in the American Hockey League, and are excited at the prospect of moving to a mature hockey market like Glens Falls that deserves to remain an AHL market. The history and tradition of the Flames franchise goes back to the team’s birth as the Atlanta Flames and we are proud to also pay tribute to our history with the introduction of a new version of the flaming “A” here in Adirondack. We look forward to building on Glens Falls’ rich hockey history.”
