Sn 11 Ep 3: AHL Season Begins, Utica All-Star Phil Giubileo and Stephen Meserve


AHL Season Begins

The city of Utica and the Utica Comets are selected as the hosts for the AHL’s ALl Star Classic 2015 just a couple days before the AHL season begins.

This week on the Power Play Post Show, hosts Bob Howard and Megan Reiff are excited for the return of the American Hockey League as the season starts Friday night with five contests. The two hosts discuss three major trades that affect AHL teams from around the league including our very own, “Three J. Brennan” who was on the New York Islanders but after a pre-season game that Megan saw him in, was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks and sent to the Rockford IceHogs.

Then the two hosts sing the praises of the city of Utica and the Utica Comets as the 2nd year franchise was awarded with the 2015 AHL All Star Classic that will take place on Sunday, January 25th and Monday, January 26th in 2015. The AHL also went back to the East Conference vs the West Conference format that was very popular two years ago.

  • Phil Giubileo – Bridgeport Sound Tigers – Radio Play-by-play Broadcaster: On Twitter: @philgpbp – Phil joined the show this week to talk about this weekend’s opening games for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers as they face off vs last season’s Eastern Conference finalists, the St. John’s IceCaps, how the Sound Tigers roster shaped out after the NY Islanders made their last cuts and the excitement around this years team.
