Welcome (Back) To the Neighborhood Wings

The Kalamazoo Wings, former Cyclones rivals in the old IHL, will join the ECHL North Division next season.

ECHL PRESS RELEASE

This is good news. After losing Mississippi, Dayton, and Phoenix it's nice to add a team back. So along with the return of Toledo, the net loss to the league is only 1 team.

I have fond memories of the old Kalamazoo Wings / Michigan K-Wings so it will be nice to play them again. It's a good road trip there and a very nice arena. It's small, but it's not a dump. It has a lot of personality but is modern enough that it isn't an embarrassment.

They have a rich hockey history. Some former Wings players you might recognize include:
Doug Barrault, Gord Dineen, Brent Fedyk, MANNY FERNANDEZ, Ron Hextall,Tony Hrkac, Duane Joyce, Marc Labelle, JAMIE LANGENBRUNNER, BRAD LUKOWICH, Roman Lyashenko, Pat MacLeod, Steve Maltais, RICHARD MATVICHUK, Richard Sevigny, Pascal Trepanier, MARTY TURCO, and ROMAN TUREK.
