As we mentioned earlier, when we introduced Agnes, we are going to introduce you to three new writers today. While Agnes joins the staff to help with the day-to-day focus of the site, the Minnesota Wild, we have other aspects of Minnesota hockey we need to keep an eye on. There are prospects around the globe that someone needs to keep an eye on, and while Dan does a spectacular job, we like to have as many eyes as close as possible.
When the Wild signed an affiliation deal with the Orlando Solar Bears, we knew we needed to find someone to keep the Wilderness up to date on happenings. The ECHL affiliation is something that is not always easy to grasp for fans of the big club, so it will be fun to see how that relationship works from the other end of the telescope.
It is not often that the big club deals with the ECHL affiliate, but there are a ton of players that worked their way up from the ECHL to the NHL, so it would be irresponsible to turn a blind eye. Plus, the ECHL is flat out a ton of fun.
With that, we introduce Sealvester, Orlando hockey extraordinaire.
Let me start off by saying that it's great to be here.
Being a rare native of the city of Orlando, I was introduced to hockey through the original Solar Bears of the old IHL. I'm really happy to see the Solar Bears come back and take the ice once again. I was also glad to see the Solar Bears team up with an old IHL rival in the Aeros as well as the Wild to see what kind of talent we can provide for both teams. Just think, Shades, Chilly, and Nordy all teaming up to create a force in the world of hockey (Yes, I love mascots to death)
As I mentioned earlier, I run a fan blog called O-Town Solar Bears Blog where I talk about what goes on in the Solar Bear world. It's a pretty simple blog from a fan who tries to make time in between selling you a laptop and reviewing lectures while pouring your third cocktail.
If any of you have any more questions or comments, you can follow us on my blog or on its Facebook page. What no Twitter you say? Yeah, I'm trying my best not to get on that for right now. Anyway, looking forward to the upcoming season more anything.
-Sealvester, or just Miles
On a personal note, I am looking forward to reading about the Solar Bears. This smaller teams have a way of making things fun on whole different levels for fans, and the hockey isn't always bad, either. Please join me, and the rest of the staff, in welcoming Sealvester to the team.
