25 Terrific Seasons
Glens Falls is celebrating its 25th season hosting
an AHL team and in so doing now joins an elite
group of only 12 other cities who can make such
a claim. It's a great hockey tradition with an
old-school feel that began with the Adirondack
Red Wings in 1979 who won four Calder Cups in
their 20-year run at the GFCC. The Adirondack
Phantoms began play in Glens Falls in 2009-2010
and are beginning their fifth season.
