Just a quick note to mention that there’ll be some hockey on TV tonight when the Amerks play against the Whale for the Traverse City Championship. The Amerks have already defeated the Houston Aero’s (recap) and Springfield Falcons (recap) while losing one game to the Grand Rapids Griffins (recap).
The Amerks have been in Traverse City for a prospects tournament and by all accounts have been playing pretty good against other prospects. Here’s hoping they keep playing well against men once the season starts instead of other kids in this tournament.
MSG Network will televise the championship game of the 2011 Traverse City NHL Prospects Tournament between the Amerks and Whale tonight at 7pm. It will also be broadcast live on Sabres.com and MSG.com for those without cable.
I should probably note yes I know it’s not really the Amerks or the other AHL teams listed, it’s the Sabres and other NHL teams that are associated with those AHL teams.. for the most part though it really is an AHL tournament with a handful of the players earning NHL jobs.
