According to WSE President Howard Baldwin, Jr, 'The Harvest-Properties.com Whale Bowl' will be one of the greatest hockey events in Connecticut history. Our goal for the AHL game remains clear: We aim to break the all-time AHL attendance record and show the world that Hartford is still a premier hockey market."
This will be the second outdoor game in the history of the AHL, and the current league single-game attendance record was set at the first, a contest between the Syracuse Crunch and the Binghamton Senators February 20, 2010 at the New York State Fairgrounds, which drew 21,508.
Baldwin also noted other key changes and additions to Whalers Hockey Fest:
- The Whalers vs. Bruins Legends game, originally scheduled for February 12 has been consolidated with February 19 event. This game will also feature Hollywood celebrities.
Baldwin stated, "Many fans indicated to us that it would be challenging and expensive to attend two marquee games played within a week of one another. By consolidating these two games, CT Whale and pro hockey fans can experience all the excitement of these events in one day, saving them travel time and expense (gas, parking concessions, etc.)."
