Last year Glens Falls Civic Center hosted what they thought would be their final hockey game for a long time. That, however, will change later this year.

Last April ended the Adirondack Phantoms five seasons in Glens Falls when they moved to Pennsylvania. City officials announced yesterday a new deal to bring hockey back to the area with the AHL affiliate of the Calgary Flames called the Heat.

Flames manager Brad Treliving said in a statement:

Glens Falls has had a terrific history with the American Hockey League and will be an ideal location and environment for the development of our prospects.

The team will play out their 2014-2015 season at the Civic Center. More about the Heat and their new home is expected to be announced in the coming weeks, but it's just good to know hockey is back in Glens Falls.
