This week’s #AHLFanFriday winner is Ricky Milliner a dedicated Hartford Wolf Pack fan.
My name is Ricky Milliner and I’m ecstatic for the upcoming season in Hartford! The Wolf Pack are celebrating their 20th anniversary in the Insurance City. I’m looking forward to reminiscing epic moments such as Terry Virtue winning it in overtime against the Providence Bruins to advance the Wolf Pack to the 2000 Calder Cup Final, the Calder Cup run in 2000, and the magical 2014-2015 season that sent the franchise deep into the playoffs.
This upcoming season fans have a lot to look forward to considering the roster having plenty of upside with the newest addition of players. It’ll be fun to watch Malte Stromwall, Matt Bodie, Ryan Graves, and Ahti Oksanen develop and grow along with the rest of the group! I also cannot wait for opening night since its on a Friday night. Plus the Pack will have new jerseys which I love!
I look forward to seeing the new home, away, and alternate jerseys on the ice and the great promotions coming up to draw a fantastic crowd. Let the good times roll for the 2016-17 season! Thinking about the past 20 seasons in the league, Hartford had many great moments and I feel honored being a fan to the long lasting franchise.
