The two other Calder Cup nights in Springfield this season will be on Saturday December 3rd when the Falcons take on the Connecticut Whale. The guests of honor on December 3rd will be the Calder Cup championship teams of 1970-71 and 1974-75.
The third and final Calder Cup night will be held on Saturday February 4, 2012 when the Norfolk Admirals provide the opposition. The Falcons will salute the only back-to-back-to-back Calder Cup champions in AHL history, the 1959-60, '60-'61 and '61-62 editions of the Springfield Indians.
"The history of hockey in Springfield runs very deep and we are excited to be honoring former championship teams this season," said Falcons President and General Manager Bruce Landon. "The special jerseys tie all of the past championship teams together and this is a great opportunity to remember many of the great teams and players who have been part of the Springfield hockey tradition."
It is expected that the commemorative sweaters will be part of a charity auction, possibly as soon as the February 4th game. More information will be here on The Cannon as soon as its available.
