The Phantoms officially unveiled the design for
their Dan Miner bobbleheads for an upcoming home-game
promotion honoring the long-time in-house voice
and personality of Adirondack hockey at the Glens

will be given away to fans in attendance at the
Adirondack Phantoms game on Saturday, April 13
against the Connecticut Whale, AHL affiliate of
the New York Rangers.
Be sure to arrive early because the Dan Miner
bobbleheads will go quickly and fans will almost

Porreca said. "He's been our announcer and
a staple within the hockey community here in Glens
Falls. It just made sense to have the Dan Miner
Bobblehead Night. We're looking forward to it.
We expect there will be people lined up before
