You probably couldn't have squeezed one more person into the first floor of the Aqua Vino restaurant on Friday as an absolutely packed house roared with excitement as former NHL goalie Robert Esche officially announced professional hockey was coming back to Utica.
Former NHL goalie Rob Esche is denying rumors that a deal has been signed to bring an AHL hockey club back to Utica. Esche confirms he is trying to bring a team to the city, but says it's still in the works at this point:
The NHL lockout seems over. Get ready for the pucks to drop! Let the games begin! Here's our hockey schedule for the rest of January, and the rest of the 2012-2013 season according to the NHL. Hockey begins January 15th.
The hockey arenas will be as desolate as a deserted wild west town when they should've been bustling with excitement next Thursday but it's official now: All games have been canceled through October 24th.
