BILOXI, Miss. – The Mississippi Sea Wolves announced that they have hired Leif Skodnick as director of communications and that Kristin Meyers has been named director of game operations.
Skodnick will broadcast all 72 regular season games and all Kelly Cup Playoff games on WTNI 1640 AM and B2 Networks, the “Official Broadband Broadcast Provider of the ECHL”, while also handling all of the team’s public relations and media relations.
After being forced by Hurricane Katrina to wait two seasons, Mississippi will finally be able to celebrate its “Decade in the Den” on Oct. 27 when it hosts Reading. The Sea Wolves have sold the most season tickets in team history as fans eagerly anticipate their return to the ice at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum for the first time since Apr. 15, 2005.
Located in Biloxi, the Sea Wolves had a Voluntary Suspension each of the last two seasons under the ECHL’s hardship provisions after the arena and the team office housed within suffered extensive damage.
