Solar Bears in Greater Toronto Area for Three Games AgainstBrampton Beast
TORONTO – The Orlando Solar Bears, proud affiliate of the NHL’s Toronto Maple Leafs and AHL’s Toronto Marlies, unveiled their Toronto Maple Leafs-inspired jerseys at a press conference Tuesday afternoon, following the team’s practice at the MasterCard Centre for Hockey Excellence.
“The decision to have these jerseys made up for the trip was a no-brainer,” Solar Bears President/CEO Jason Siegel said. “We thought it was a great way to extend the synergy between the franchises, and we think the guys are going to look unbelievable when they take the ice Thursday night.”
The Solar Bears arrived in Toronto early Monday morning and took in a Maple Leafs game at the Air Canada Centre that evening. The team will practice once again at the MasterCard Centre on Wednesday before departing to Brampton for a three-game set against the Brampton Beast, the ECHL affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens, starting Thursday, Mar. 10 at the Powerade Centre.
The Solar Bears also announced Toronto native Michael Da Costa as the winner of the Toronto Maple Leafs Ultimate Orlando Getaway online contest sponsored by Visit Orlando. As the winner of the contest, Da Costa will receive an all-expenses paid trip for four to Orlando, a total of eight single-day theme park passes to either Walt Disney World, Sea World or Universal Orlando, the equivalent of one day’s pay with the Solar Bears and a personalized Solar Bears jersey.
The Solar Bears continue their fourth season in the ECHL, presented by Auto Justice Attorney Michael T. Gibson, P.A., on Thursday, Mar. 10 at 7:15 p.m. when they they take on the Brampton Beast at the Powerade Centre. Fans can listen to the game at iheartsolarbears.com or watch via ECHL.TV.
