Multiyear Affiliation Agreement With Utah of the ECHL

yeeeey, finally a badass logo



Actually since we have now more and more prospects coming up, some will have to play in Utah (Bobkov, O`Brien maybe). The affiliation is multiyear, so some stability on that part.


Where: West Valley City (around 130 k population). Grizzlies play in city's main arena, Maverick center that hosted the Olympics in 2002.
When: Grizzlies joined the ECHL in 2005-06 (have made 7 PO appearances, including last 6 years)
Web: http://www.utahgrizzlies.com/

PS
Niedermayer have played 5 games in Grizzlies jersey during the 98/99 season in IHL.

Ohhhhhh.... A grizzlie bear wearing a Mighty Ducks' mask (the ones they used to sell), but aura around the mask is 'en fuego' like that of Hiller's mask! Underneath the Duck mask you can still the the grizzlie's sharp teeth!

The org needs to own a minor or ECHL team and just call them the Ducklings.

Very very excited about this. Will get to keep a close eye on our guys... Utah fans love that team and they have a decent following. Also love the fact that it brings a affiliate within a stones throw (relative I guess) of the big club. Also the ECHL has grown leaps and bounds over the last few year and is a lot closer to AHL level play then some might think. It may be worth it for some to catch a game vs. the reign. Hope this can can turn into a great affiliations for both

I don't know what happened to our ECHL team in Bakersfield, but at least now with Utah, we are back to being able to send a guy down for a day and bring him back in 24 hours like we used to do.

Hope it works out well. It seems like a lot of these minor league teams in the West fail for some reason. I think it has to do with increased travel costs.
