Kevin McGlue named Colorado Eagles Team Winner of AHL's IOA/American Specialty Person of the Year award

WINDSOR, CO. – The Colorado Eagles, AHL affiliate of the Colorado Avalanche, are proud to announce that Vice President of Communications & Broadcasting Kevin McGlue has been named the club’s winner of the IOA/American Specialty AHL Person of the Year award for his work during the 2021-22 season.
McGlue has been “The Voice of the Eagles” since the 2009-10 season and has been involved with the team’s broadcasts for 17 of their 19 seasons to date.
“Beyond his broadcast and communications duties, McGlue's work within our community outreach program has been outstanding,” said Eagles president Ryan Bach. “He is essentially the ‘glue’ of our organization, binding our fan base and community.  During the past two seasons and working through the strict COVID-19 protocols, Kevin was instrumental in organizing many player/coach community events via Zoom and conference calls, even organizing a 60-person meeting honoring our 25 cancer warriors, players, and coaches. Kevin's dedication and hard work can also be seen with the team's annual 'Pot of Gold' fundraiser which vows to make a profound impact in the Northern Colorado community, a program that Kevin himself helped start and grow.”
Traditionally acknowledging a player for his outstanding contributions to his local community, this season the league expanded the Person of the Year program to allow teams to recognize individuals who played an important and perhaps unexpected role in supporting their organization and/or impacting the local community as the AHL again navigated through a season impacted by COVID-19.
Presented annually since 1998, the AHL’s Yanick Dupré Memorial Award honors the late Yanick Dupré, who passed away in 1997 at the age of 24 following a 16-month battle with leukemia. A second-round draft pick of the Philadelphia Flyers in 1991, Dupré played four seasons in the AHL with the Hershey Bears and was an AHL All-Star in 1995.
