UHL’s Ice Hawks Move To Glens Falls

June 15, 1999

Hockey is headed back to Glens Falls.

The owner of the United Hockey League’s Winston-Salem Ice Hawks announced Monday that the team is moving to Glens Falls.  The team will be called the Adirondack Ice Hawks and will join the BC Icemen in a five-team Eastern Division.  Mohawk Valley (Utica), Asheville (N.C.) and Knoxville (Tenn.) round out the division.

“I think it’s a good fit for the city,” Glens Falls mayor Robert Regan said.

Training camp will begin Oct. 4.  The season opener will be Oct. 15.

Robbie Nichols, former coach of the UHL’s Flint Generals and a member of the American Hockey League’s Adirondack Red Wings in the late 1980s, was introduced as a partner and general manager.  Ice Hawks owner Art Shaver, a Delhi native, said Nichols may appoint himself coach.  Nichols, who had been with the Generals for four seasons, resigned his post earlier this month.

Glens Falls was left without a team last month, when the Detroit Red Wings announced the team was suspending operations.  The Red Wings will move their AHL affiliate to a suburb of Toledo, Ohio, for the 2000-01 season.
