HARTFORD, CT – The Hartford Wolf Pack are excited to announce plans for the 2021-22 regular season, the franchise’s 25th as a member of the American Hockey League (AHL). As part of the season-long celebration, the Wolf Pack has designed and released a special 25th-anniversary logo that will be used throughout the season.
The logo incorporates the classic Wolf Pack primary logo, with a nod to the area’s naval roots. The uniform also includes the number ‘25’, indicating the milestone. Below the Wolf Pack lettering, the years 1997-2022 are listed. The Wolf Pack joined the AHL in time for the 1997-98 season, bringing professional hockey back to Hartford after a brief hiatus.
The action all begins with ‘Opening Weekend’ at the XL Center. The Wolf Pack drop the puck on the season on Friday, October 15th at 7:00 pm when they play host to in-state rivals the Bridgeport Islanders. ‘Opening Weekend’ concludes on Sunday, October 17th at 3:00 pm when the Wolf Pack play host to the Providence Bruins.
In addition to a special 25th-anniversary logo and ‘Opening Weekend’ festivities, the Wolf Pack will host numerous promotional events throughout the season. Among them, the organization will host its annual ‘Hockey Fights Cancer’ night at the XL Center.
The ‘Teddy Bear Toss’ also returns for the 2021-22 season, in addition to ‘Hartford Hockey Heritage Night’ to celebrate the game’s lengthy roots in the city.
The full 2021-22 promotional schedule will be released in three parts throughout the month of September in the lead-up to the 25th anniversary season. The first part was released on all Hartford Wolf Pack social media channels September 8th.
