Calgary Flames AHL team to move to Abbotsford
The official application to relocate the Calgary Flames American Hockey League affiliate to Abbotsford B.C. was filed today with the League head office in Springfield M.A.
The application is the latest step for an Abbotsford based investment group to bring the best possible brand of hockey to the City of Abbotsford’s new 7018 seat arena set to open at the
end of March. Subject to Board approval, play will commence for the start of the 2009 – 2010 season.
NHL stars Miikka Kirpusoff (Calgary Flames), Jason Spezza (Ottawa Senators), Martin Brodeur (New Jersey Devils), and Daniel Briere (Buffalo Sabres) are among hundreds of current NHL players who honed their skills in the AHL.
