I will be at work all day today, and well into the night, so I won’t be able to update if this is officially announced today, but this is from the Plain Dealer:
The American Hockey League team owned by Dan Gilbert will be the top affiliate of the Colorado Avalanche, Cavaliers officials confirmed Saturday.
Gilbert, owner of the Cavaliers, and a group of investors purchased a dormant AHL franchise, the Utah Grizzlies, earlier this year. The AHL approved the sale in May.
The Cavaliers and Avalanche agreed on a multiyear deal that is expected to be announced officially today
One good thing about Cleveland, they are right next to the best amusement park in the world. So there.
Oh, also, this is for Brushback of sidearm delivery…
The current franchise still needs a nickname and accompanying logo. Komoroski said broadcast reports that the team will be known as the Fighting Walleyes are premature.
Someone needs to photoshop up a Walleye jersey.
