#NEWS: The AHL’s Board of Governors unanimously approved the relocation of the franchise owned by the New Jersey Devils from Binghamton, N.Y., to Utica, N.Y., effective starting with the 2021-22 season.
The AHL franchise owned by the Vancouver Canucks will relocate from Utica, N.Y., to Abbotsford, B.C.
The AHL franchise owned by the New Jersey Devils will relocate from Binghamton, N.Y., to Utica, N.Y.
#Canucks’ Abbotsford relocation is approved, by the AHL BoG, and Utica will have an AHL team next season - the Devils’ affiliate.
Despite Robert Esche’s TM registration of the Utica Devils, I’d expect the Comets to keep their name:
The AHL has approved the #Canucks’ AHL franchise relocation from Utica to Abbotsford. #NJDevils are moving the Binghamton Devils to Utica, where they will remain the Comets. Jersey designs and colors to follow at a later date.
Not sure how I missed this one, but Nikita Alexandrov has made a big AHL debut!
The former Islander has three points in his first three Games with the Utica Comets, including two goals. https://t.co/i5t9qgrWQn
@DevilsRedAlert This is why it'll be a fascinating off-season.
Didn't Fitz talk about adding "difficult-to-play-against" players?
And who knows how Mercer will look at camp? They could probably afford to give him a year in Utica.
Who knows what guys they could steal with weaponizing the cap?
@RantingRon716 Most of my family still live back in Utica. I moved away the year before the AHL team went there.
The Utica Comets have been amazing for that struggling community & economy. I’m so glad they’re still going to have a team there. Hopefully I get to catch a game when I go to visit
