    Glens Falls Working to Secure a Hockey Team


    As Glens Falls continues to work on attracting another hockey team to the area, under the leadership of Mayor Diamond, numerous organizations are supporting the effort, including EDC Warren County.

    A terrific article documenting the city's hockey history was just published by the American Hockey League (AHL).

    Below is an excerpt from the article, which highlights the work underway to make sure hockey continues in Glens Falls:


    "This season, the city is celebrating its 25th year in the American Hockey League: 20 years of the Adirondack Red Wings and now five seasons with the Adirondack Phantoms. Twenty-five seasons is a rich history. 

    "And it's something which only nine other current AHL markets can claim. Whether there will be a 26th season for the AHL in Glens Falls remains to be seen but city officials are hard at work doing everything they can in their continued efforts to make that happen and attract a new team. They are working with American Hockey League President and CEO David Andrews and are talking with other teams. 

    " "We are looking for a seamless transition," Mayor Diamond said. "We are fully committed to having the American Hockey League in Glens Falls for 2014-2015. I'm excited about our opportunities here. We're getting out there and telling them about the rich hockey history of Glens Falls and the opportunities that Glens Falls brings." "
