Flames to move AHL franchise to Glens Falls
The American Hockey League's Board of Governors on Monday approved the relocation of the franchise owned by the Calgary Flames from Abbotsford, B.C., to Glens Falls, N.Y., beginning next season.

The American Hockey League's Board of Governors on Monday approved the relocation of the franchise owned by the Calgary Flames from Abbotsford, B.C., to Glens Falls, N.Y., beginning next season.

The Flames' AHL franchise will begin play this fall at the Glens Falls Civic Center, which had been home to the Adirondack Phantoms since 2009. The Phantoms had been previously granted approval to relocate to Allentown, Pa., where they will begin play as the Lehigh Valley Phantoms this fall.

"Glens Falls has had a terrific history with the American Hockey League and will be an ideal location and environment for the development of our prospects," Flames general manager Brad Treliving said. "When we announced on April 15 our discontinuation of operations in the city of Abbotsford, we had a few options available to us and there was much speculation about Glens Falls. There has been a high level of interest demonstrated to ensure the AHL remains in that market. We look forward to finalizing details and beginning this new partnership."
