GREENVILLE, SC – The Greenville Road Warriors announced today that they have entered into an affiliation agreement with the National Hockey League’s Philadelphia Flyers and the American Hockey League’s Adirondack Phantoms for the 2010-11 season.
“To be affiliated with the Philadelphia Flyers and Adirondack Phantoms will greatly enhance what it means to be a member of the Greenville Road Warriors. The Flyers are committed to winning at every level. We hope to help them with that commitment by developing their future AHL and NHL players,” said Road Warriors president and general manager Neil Smith.
The Road Warriors will play their inaugural season as the ECHL affiliate of the Flyers and the New York Rangers. The Rangers, and AHL’s Hartford Wolf Pack, were announced last week as affiliates of the Road Warriors.
