And just a little nugget of history ... the last AHL team that won the Calder Cup and moved affiliation city the following year, the team that came in to replace them went on to win the Calder Cup. Here's to hoping that history repeats itself!
Right now it seems that the goalie tandem for the Ducks in the AHL will be Bobkov and J.D. Deslauriers. JDD could beat our new European backup goalie, Fasth, at camp but it seems unlikely at this point. It's possible that the Ducks sign another goalie on a two-way contract.
Looking forward to hearing more about this affiliation deal.
