AUGUSTA, Ga. – The Augusta Lynx announced that they have renewed their affiliation agreement with the Stanley Cup Champion Anaheim Ducks of the National Hockey League and the Portland Pirates of the American Hockey League.
The Lynx had eight players who were under contract to either the Ducks or the Pirates at the end of last season including goaltender Dave McKee, who was called up twice to Anaheim in 2006-07.
“I couldn’t be happier to once again share this affiliation,” said Lynx general manager Dan Troutman. “The quality and skill level of the players we have received in the past from both Anaheim and Portland has been phenomenal, and they have made a direct and immediate impact for our team. Plus, who wouldn’t want to be affiliated with the Stanley Cup Champions? It is a great opportunity for this organization moving forward into our 10th Anniversary.”
