Bear Sightings to Continue for Another Year or Two

The Washington Capitals and the Hershey Bears have jointly announced that the affiliation agreement between the two clubs have been extended through the 2009-10 season with an option for the 2010-11 season.
Previously affiliated for seven seasons from 1977 to 1984, this next season will be the fourth in this most recent marriage. Currently, the Capitals are also affiliated with the East Coast Hockey League’s South Carolina Stingrays.
Additionally, per Tim Leone, it was also announced that Bob Woods’ contract was extended and will be the head coach of the Bears for 2008-09 with Mark French as an assistant.

    Pretty much a no-brainer for renewal. I only wonder from Hershey’s perspective of having so many young players just breaking into Pro hockey doesn’t necessarily translate to a championship if AHL vets are getting squeezed out on the roster.

  5. My plan, Chris, would be to pay a visit to any summer development camp that might take place at the GC.
