A welcome back AHL!

“The boys are back in town” boomed through the speakers as AHL T-shirts were tossed into the crowd and celebrities played ball hockey at Mile One stadium Friday morning. Danny Williams, President and CEO of the new team and Mark Chipman of True North Sports and Entertainment went all out holding an event to confirm the American Hockey League will be returning to St. John’s in the fall. Also on hand were Glenn Stanford, Chief Operating Officer; Craig Heisinger of true North; Dave Andrews, AHL President; and St. John’s mayor Dennis O’Keefe.

Above all else, former premier and team president Danny Willams asked for the province's support to keep the AHL alive.
The team's name as yet to be announced.
Local celebrities Alan Doyle, Allan Hawco, Snook and Mark Critch hot the rink for a game of ball hockey with kids.
