Wildcats Pump Up the Sound
Tuesday, May 03, 2016

The Atlanta Gladiators recently stopped by Big Creek Elementary School to present the school with a check for $1236. The school earned the money when their chorus performed God Bless America during first intermission of the February 6 game versus Brampton.

According to Jill Hackney, Chorus Teacher, the funds raised will be used to help purchase sound equipment for use in the music program.

If your school, athletic organization or other non-profit is interested in finding out more about the Gladiators fundraising program please contact the Gladiators front office at 770-497-5100.

16-17 Schedule Announced
Thursday, April 28, 2016

The Atlanta Gladiators revealed the team’s 2016-2017 schedule on Thursday, with Opening Night set for Friday, October 14th, at 7:35 PM against the Toledo Walleye. The Gladiators will also face the Walleye the following evening at Infinite Energy Arena, with a start time of 7:05 PM.

The Gladiators will host 11 different teams over the course of their 36 home games from mid-October through mid-April, some of which include a first look at recent additions to the ECHL. The Tulsa Oilers (OK) and the Wichita Thunder (KS) began ECHL play during the 14-15 season, and will make their first trip to Duluth in January and November, respectively. Similarly, in October, Atlanta will make its first trip to Texas to take on the Allen Americans, who joined the league in 14-15 as well.

Also visiting the Infinite Energy Arena will be five teams very familiar to Gladiators fans. Division foes Greenville, South Carolina, Florida, and Orlando have multiple stints in town, as do the Norfolk Admirals. Fans should also recognize the Toledo Walleye and Elmira Jackals, both longtime ECHL member teams, and the Adirondack Thunder and Manchester Monarchs - both of whom made first visits to Duluth last season.

25 of the team’s 36 home games will fall on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, with six additional "holiday" games occurring when local children are out of school.

Fan favorite dates returning for the 16-17 season include the Gladiators annual Thanksgiving game (11/24 vs. Norfolk) and the MLK Jr. Holiday "Kids Day Out" game (1/16 vs. Norfolk @ 12:35 PM). Games occurring on Tuesday through Thursday, as well as Saturday, will continue to start at 7:05 PM. Friday home games have a 7:35 PM start time, and Sundays will remain at 2:05 PM.

A complete list of all 16-17 Gladiators home game dates will follow this press release.

The Atlanta Gladiators 14th season kicks off at the Infinite Energy Arena on Friday, October 14th against the Toledo Walleye at 7:35 PM. For ticket information, visit the official team website at www.atlantagladiators.com or call the main office line at 770-497-5100.

The Gladiators are members of the ECHL, the nation’s premier "AA" hockey league.

    GDP Speaks With Coach Brandt
    Monday, April 18, 2016

    It all turned on a seven-game stretch. The promise, the expectation and, ultimately, the Atlanta Gladiators' season, met its demise over 12 days in early March. The Gladiators' offense evaporated and they plummeted out of a playoff spot.Atlanta wasn't officially eliminated until almost a month later, but that seven-game losing skid was too much to overcome. The Gladiators were a .500 team from there out and several other teams made a better push down the stretch to claim the conference's final playoff berths."In the month of March, we had 12 games ...CONTINUE READING This story originally appeared in the Sunday, April 17th edition of the Gwinnett Daily Post.

    Glads End Year with 5-4 Win
    Saturday, April 09, 2016

    The Gladiators hoped to finish the 2015-2016 season with a bang, and they did just that in front of a raucous home crowd on Saturday night. After being up 4-0 over the Swamp Rabbits heading into the 3rd, Greenville managed to tie it up before Ian Barteaux buried an unbelievable shot with 3.8 seconds remaining in regulation to give the Glads the 5-4 victory!

    In their last game of the season, Derek Nesbitt opened up the scoring against the Greenville Swamp Rabbits after deflecting an initial slapshot by Max Everson from the point. The Gladiators leading scorer notched his 28th goal of the year and gave the captain his 62nd point of the season. Everson picked up his 15th assist on the primary assist while Brock Higgs was credited with his 41st point on the secondary helper.

    Tyler Murovich doubled the lead with 2:51 left in the first period on a shot from the left circle that beat the blocker of Greenville goalkeeper, Alain Valiquette. Patrick D'Amico dropped the puck off to the assistant captain who was able to rear back for the open shot and take the 2-0 lead. Corey Fienhage picked up his second assist while D'Amico recorded his 19th point on Murovich's career high 19th goal of the season.

    The Atlanta Gladiators took a three point lead 4:14 into the second period. Thomas Frazee and Murovich combined for a tic-tac-toe passing sequence that started inside the right circle, sent the puck across the face of the net and was tapped into the goal by D'Amico. The Winnipeg native notched his 13th goal of the season while Murovich and Frazee registered their 20th and 31st assists, respectively.

    Atlanta increased their lead to 4-0 off the stick of Brock Higgs at the 11:10 mark of the second frame. Ian Barteaux slapped the puck from the right point and ricocheted off the forwards stick, past Valiquette and into the net. Higgs' 20th goal gave Barteaux his 13th assist on the season. Mike Merrifield was awarded the secondary assist on the play.

    The Swamp Rabbits got on the board with 2:43 left in the second period on the team's second powerplay opportunity of the night. Michael St. Croix made a circle-to-circle pass to Chris Leone who one-timed the puck past the glove of Gladiators' goaltender, Matt Ginn. The rookie notched his first goal of the season while St. Croix recorded his 29th assist of the season. Justin DaSilva tallied his 18th assist on the secondary helper.

    Greenville cut the lead in half with 15:58 remaining in the third period off a one-time shot by Brian Hart. Quick passing from Ryan Rashid and Garett Bembridge helped open up space for the forward who tucked a pass across the face of the net into past Ginn. Hart picked up his 11th goal of the season while Bembridge and Rashid registered their 10th and 25th helpers, respectively.

    The Swamp Rabbits cut the defecit to one with 6:30 left in the third frame on a consecutive powerplay goal. Josh Nicholls hit a slapshot from the slot that sent the puck through the legs of Ginn and made the score 4-3 in favor of the Gladiators. Scott Fleming recorded his 35th assist on Nicholls 11th score of the season.

    Nicholls struck again four minutes later to complete four-goal comeback. Fleming and Leone combined to find the Tsawwassen, British Columbia product for his second goal and tied the game at four. Nicholls recorded his 12th goal of the season and credited Leone and Fleming with the assists.

    Ian Barteaux scored the game-winning goal with 3.8 seconds left in the third frame on a long slapshot. Justin Buzzeo worked the puck from the left circle to Barteaux who hit a clean shot into the upper-right hand corner of the net to seal the victory for the Gladiators. The defenseman notched his second point of the night and his 18th of the year. Buzzeo picked up his 27th point on the primary assist.

    With the win in the season finale, Atlanta finished the season with the winning record of 34-31-5-2 and 75 points on the season. That completed the first winning season since the 2012-13 season for the Gladiators.

    Glads Drop Final Road Game
    Friday, April 08, 2016

    Playing in Greenville, and on the road, for the final time this season, the Gladiators hoped to spoil the Swamp Rabbits final home game. Even with goals from Thomas Frazee and Justin Buzzeo, the latter of which tied the game in the 3rd, the Glads fell to Greenville by a final score of 3-2.

    Greenville would get on the scoreboard first just 2:08 into the opening period. Brian Hart notched his 10th goal of the season on a breakaway goal. Garrett Bembridge picked up his 23rd assist on the year with the primary helper and Greg Amlong registered his first pro point with the secondary assist.

    The Swamp Rabbits extended their lead to two with the first tally of the second period. Charlie Dodero took a slap shot from the right point after a Greenville face-off win that found its way between the legs of the Atlanta goalie, Kent Patterson. Hart earned his second point of the night getting the lone assist after winning the draw back to Dodero.

    Thomas Frazee cut the lead in half as he scored the first Gladiators goal 17:41 into the middle frame. After the British Columbia native’s first shot was blocked, he sent a second strike on goal that beat Swamp Rabbit netminder, Alain Valiquette. Tyler Murovich and Jake Bolton received credit for the helpers on Frazee’s 16th goal of the campaign.

    The Gladiators tied the game with just over four minutes to go in the game. Justin Buzzeo sent a wrist shot over the shoulder of Valiquette for his 11th goal on the year. Max Everson registered the only helper on the play giving him 15 assists on the season.

    Just over a minute later, Greenville re-took the lead when Michael St. Croix sprung in on a breakaway after splitting the Atlanta defense and beat Patterson for his 11th goal of the season. The Gladiators would come close to tying the game late but eventually fell to the Swamp Rabbits by the score of 3-2. In the loss, the Gladiators remain at 73 points on the season and Greenville improved to 68 points in the win.

    Final 15-16 PGP Saturday
    Friday, April 08, 2016

    The Gladiators invite you to join us after the game this SATURDAY night for our final Post Game Party of the 15-16 season! Held at the Marlow’s Tavern located on Satellite Boulevard, just north of Sugarloaf Parkway near the Arena at Infinite Energy Center, these parties occur after select home games throughout the season.

    Saturday's Featured Players are: Defensemen Joe Stejskal and Max Everson.

    Gladiators Broadcaster Chris Treft will be on hand to anchor the game recap while also discussing aspects of the season with Head Coach Andy Brandt and the two players. Coach Brandt, as well as Stejskal and Everson, will be available to speak to fans, meet kids and/or autograph your Gladiators memorabilia!

    PLEASE NOTE: Due to the Glads Post Game Jersey Auction, the Post Game Party will NOT begin immediately following the game, per usual. Stejskal and Everson will have their jerseys auctioned first so they have time to shower and get ready for the party, but we will hold the Coaches Show for a bit to accommodate the fans that stay for the entire auction. If you'd like to attend the PGP, we encourage you to join us for the auction - regardless of whether or not you're planning to bid - and then join us at Marlow's!

    Coach Brandt and the players will be answering questions from the fans, but we want you to feel comfortable asking them. Fans can submit their questions on social media, in advance of the post game party, by using the hashtag: #GladsPGP. Fans can also submit their question AT the party via entry forms the Gladiators will have at their table. If your question is selected and asked during the Post Game Party, you will win a Gladiators prize! Plus, of those selected winners, one lucky fan will be selected as that night's Grand Prize Winner!

    Marlow's Tavern is a proud supporter of the Atlanta Gladiators and a perfect pre- and post-game location to enjoy some great food and drink in a warm and inviting atmosphere. You can catch your favorite game on the many TV screens, enjoy a delicious meal in one of the many private booths or hang with your friends and family in the spacious bar area.

    Live Jersey Auction Saturday
    Thursday, April 07, 2016

    The Gladiators will be auctioning off their 15-16 Game Worn Away/Black Jerseys at the conclusion of this Saturday’s home game against the Greenville Swamp Rabbits. Following the conclusion of the game Saturday, fans will be asked to relocate to Sections 104 & 105. Roughly 10 minutes after the team has left the ice, they will return to the bench area and the auction will begin, hosted by Glads PA Announcer Steve Craig. Bidding will start at $250 per jersey. THIS IS NOT A CHARITY AUCTION.

    Once the bidding on a jersey has concluded, the winning bidder will be escorted down to the Pre-Function Area by a member of the Gladiators staff so that they may meet the player*, and receive the jersey after he autographs it. Also, at that time, payment will be taken for the jersey. Cash, credit, or check (with presentation of a valid photo ID) are acceptable forms of payment. Those who pay with cash/credit may take their jersey with them Saturday. Those who pay by check must wait until their check clears the bank, and then they will be contacted by the Gladiators Office to come pick up their jersey.

    This type of auction traditionally moves much faster than the Specialty Jersey auction earlier in the season. If you plan to bid on more than one player's jersey, we suggest you have a friend/family member with you to help, in case you are in the Pre-Function Area during subsequent auctions.
