Special Commemorative Logo Unveiled
September 9, 2013

In a special media conference this afternoon, the Adirondack Phantoms unveiled a new commemorative logo for the 25th AHL season in Glens Falls. The event took place at Heritage Hall inside the Glens Falls Civic Center in front of fans and area media.

Speaking at the event to discuss the area's rich hockey past and excitement for the future were Glens Falls Mayor Jack Diamond, CEO and President of the Adirondack Chamber of Commerce Peter Aust, and Phantoms Co-President and Co-Owner Rob Brooks.

"We celebrate a historic milestone in the rich history of Adirondack hockey," Rob Brooks said. "We are entering an elite group of only 12 other cities that can say they have hosted an American Hockey League team for 25 years."

The logo was designed locally by Jesse Tyree of Black Dog Designs in Glens Falls. It features a cityscape and buildings of downtown Glens Falls as a showcase to the area. "Red Wings" and "Phantoms" are spelled out on each side of the logo as a tribute to both of the AHL teams who have called Glens Falls their home. Sticks criss-cross underneath the "25" insignia which is encircled by a puck.

The new logo will be prominently featured throughout the season. Also unveiled at the ceremony was a template for a special jersey using the same logo which the Phantoms will wear in their home game on November 23. Commemorative pint glasses with the logo are available through the Phantoms' Opening Night Ticket Package and souvenir pucks with the logo will be on sale beginning with that first home game on October 12.

As the team honored and recognized the hockey tradition and history in Glens Falls, attentions were also turned to the future.

"We are very excited about this coming year. 25 years worth of history is phenomenal in Glens Falls," said Mayor Jack Diamond. "We are looking for a seamless transition. I am fully committed to having American League Hockey in Glens Falls for 2014-2015. I'm excited about our opportunities."

Mayor Diamond went onto explain part of the city's game-plan moving forward. "We've been in discussions with Rob and Jim Brooks. My intentions are to go in front of the (AHL) Board of Governors, make a presentation, and tell them a little bit about Glens Falls and our rich history. We know that in a competitive market the building is going to need a little bit of an upgrade so we have submitted applications for funding to do some improvements that may be required. Getting in front of the American Hockey League ownership group is very important."
