Also we will be participating in the annual American Hockey league Booster Club Convention this year hosted by the Hamilton Bulldogs Booster Club in Hamilton Ontario Canada in September (see other thread for info)
We are still here and still hope something will happen in getting another AHL team and we thank you for all the support throughout the years.it has been difficult realizing that after 11 years there may not be hockey here in Worcester come September which has made it difficult for me personally to go to local AHL playoff games.I have followed them in the papers and thru the ahl.com site but have that empty feeling in my heart still, having lost my IceCats after 11 years.I've seen all the threads and responses on this site and AHLboards2 but haven't responded to any regarding the other teams because it still hurts alot realizing there is no IceCats hockey in the future.There are a lot of us that have been here since day one supporting the IceCats both during the hockey season and in the off season so I'm sure it has been hard for many of us.Bring AHL hockey back to Worcester!
