gerry-150x130BY: Gerry Cantlon, Howlings

The announcement that the Winnipeg Jets have signed a one-year extension in St. John’s comes as plans for a new building in Thunder Bay have not been finalized. That means that the IceCaps will play the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons in the eastern most part of Canada. They will seek to break the AHL record for consecutive games sold out of 144 that’s held by the Wilkes Barre/Scranton Penguins, who presently are on a streak of 114 straight.

As we reported last month via the Thunder Bay Chronicle-Herald, a September 25th public meeting is scheduled with the hopes of laying the groundwork and finalizing financing for the project. Continue reading

SONAR AND THE ALS CHALLENGE

Capture6BY: Mitch Beck, Publisher, Howlings

A quick note on a Thursday…
“Sonar,” the lovable mascot of the Hartford Wolf Pack, accepted the challenge posed by the Worcester Sharks mascot, “Fin,” to help raise awareness of ALS.
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, or ALS, is defined as, “A disease of the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control voluntary muscle movement.” ALS is also known by another name, “Lou Gehrig’s Disease.”
As you’ll see in the video posted on the Wolf Pack’s Facebook page, Sonar is up to the challenge and calls out several other mascots along the way. “Screech” of the team’s I-91 rival, Springfield Falcons; “Storm” of the Pack’s in-state rival, Bridgeport Sound Tigers and “Rocky” of the AA affiliate of the Minnesota Twins Major League Baseball team, the New Britain Rock Cats.
