The Colorado Eagles, proud AHL affiliate of the Colorado Avalanche, have announced that the Egals Ice Crew will be representing a new name and look for the 2021-22 season. This October fans will see the debut of the Flight Crew, a coed group of individuals that are talented skaters and promotional ambassadors for the Eagles that will help enhance the experience at the Budweiser Events Center every night. The Flight Crew will continue to represent the Eagles brand and the sport of hockey with passion and professionalism like the Egals have done since the 2013-14 season. Iron Mountain will also return as the sponsor of the program.
“We are excited to develop this program into an even stronger group of ambassadors to represent the Eagles," Eagles' Team President Brian Petrovek said. “We will be joining many AHL and NHL teams by providing a coed ice crew and we are looking forward to seeing the talent from local skaters at tryouts.”
The Flight Crew will hold their tryouts Saturday, September 25th at the Budweiser Events Center. Interested candidates that are aged 18 or older will demonstrate their skating ability and participate in a group interview to test their knowledge on the Colorado Eagles and hockey. The Flight Crew will be a 15-member team that includes skaters from various backgrounds of hockey and figure skating.
