The American Hockey League is coming to the great hockey city of Belleville, Ontario, and I am delighted to say that I will be working for the club in hopes of making it the premier franchise in the AHL.
My role is Vice President of the team, and I will be based at the Yardman Arena working with the great support staff of the City of Belleville and the Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey League, as Belleville and the entire Quinte Region welcomes professional hockey for the first time.
Eugene Melnyk, the owner of the Ottawa Senators, purchased the team in September, 2016, with the club (currently based in Binghamton , New York), moving to Belleville in time for the 2017-18 AHL season. I look forward to working with Mr. Melnyk and our new Chief Operating Officer, Rob Mullowney, to make the Belleville Senators the "Green Bay Packers of the AHL" - a small town team with a big city presentation!
Belleville has always been one of my favorite stops as a visiting broadcaster. It's a community of warm, hard-working people who embraced their OHL team for many years. After the disappointment of losing their junior hockey franchise, their hard work has resulted in getting a team in the second best hockey league in the world - the AHL - for the first time. Everything does indeed happen for a reason!
It is an exciting time for hockey fans in the Quinte area, despite the fact that the Belleville Bulls of the Ontario Hockey League were sold and moved to Hamilton in 2015. Since then the city has been working hard to get another team for the rabid hockey fans of the area, and they were successful in helping to bring the top farm team of the Ottawa Senators to town.
Not only is Belleville getting a new professional hockey team, the city is also getting a completely revamped arena. Construction will be under way soon at Yardman Arena and the end result will be a totally modern, state-of-the-art facility that will seat 4,400 fans and feature private boxes and luxury seating, in addition to affordable seats for hockey fans of all ages!
This website will have plenty of updates and news on the Belleville Senators in the coming months, but I encourage all fans in the area to check out www.bellevillesens.com for all the latest news as the arena project continues and ticket pricing information becomes available. You can also follow the team on Twitter @bellevillesen for all the latest news.
Look forward to being a part of this franchise and reconnecting with all the great hockey fans in Belleville...Go Sens Go!!!
