DULUTH: Gladiators look to fill hockey void

DULUTH: Gladiators look to fill hockey void

DULUTH, Ga. -- Officials with the Gwinnett Gladiators want to reassure hockey fans that the team's staying put, despite the sale of the Atlanta Thrashers.

The Minor League Gladiators have a different owners group, and the team ended its development affiliation with the Thrashers about a month ago.

The team recently signed a new three-year lease with the Gwinnett Arena and have no plans to move.

In fact, season tickets are now on sale. The home-opener is scheduled for October 21.

The team saw a slight increase in attendance during its second season, which coincided with the NHL lockout.

The Gladiators are a member of the ECHL.

The team's future has generated a lot of buzz on Facebook and Twitter.

"I will be among the crowd more often this year at the Glads games," posted one fan.

Equipment Manager sees second NHL team leave

Equipment Manager sees second NHL team leave

DULUTH, Ga. -- When it comes to the NHL in Atlanta, Bobby Stewart has seen it all.  He has served both the Flames and Thrashers as Head Equipment Manager.

The official announcement of the Trashers sell and relocation to Winnipeg brings some familiar feelings for Stewart, who joined the Flames in 1973 and moved to Calgary in 1980.  The native of Montreal loved Atlanta and jumped at the chance to return when the Thrashers landed in 1999.  Now he is faced with helping another NHL team pack to leave Atlanta and head north to Canada.
