-This marks Adirondack’s home opener, their first as the Flames (last 5 seasons as the Phantoms).
-If you were hoping for a possible matchup of former River Rat Trevor Gillies vs. Cam Janssen, sorry to disappoint you. He will have to sit out tonight due to, well, being Trevor Gillies.
-One other local tie of note: former Union College forward Josh Jooris is a member of the Flames, in his second year pro.
-With the move from Abbotsford keeping Adirondack in the Western Conference, this marks Albany’s only visit to the North Country, despite being its closest opponent on the schedule.
