The Rochester Americans sent out a notice this afternoon that they will be hosting a major press conferenc on Wednesday afternoon to announce the new VP of Hockey Operations. My guess was that they would be announcing that this is the new role of Jody Gage, but someone who supposedly knows the situation said it is not.
I’ll be there for the announcement and will post live on the @LetsGoAmerks Twitter account when we learn who it is. It’s sort of exciting not knowing something ahead of time, here’s hoping it’s an exciting announcement.
Given that tomorrow is July 1st, the start of free agency hopefully we’ll be able to get more information about players being signed or the direction they’re looking to go.
In attendance will be Curt Styres (Owner and CEO of the Rochester Americans), Lewis Staats (President of the Rochester Americans), Don Stevens (Voice of the Rochester Americans), and of course the new VP of Hockey Operations.
