MATHIEU TOUSIGNANT NAMED ADIRONDACK FLAMES 2014-15 IOA/AMERICAN SPECIALTY MAN OF THE YEAR

The Adirondack Flames are proud to announce that Mathieu Tousignant has been named the team’s winner of the IOA/American Specialty AHL Man of the Year award for his outstanding contributions to the North Country community during the 2014-15 season.

Tousignant has embraced the local community since he arrived since the Flames arrived for training camp in September. In just one season, Tousignant has already become a fan favorite at the Glens Falls Civic Center, winning fans over with his all-out efforts both on and off the ice.

Over the past seven months, Tousignant has visited with local children at youth centers, camps and youth hockey practices and has made his mark in Glens Falls and surrounding areas in just a short time. Tousignant visited both the Glens Falls Youth Center and Double H Ranch, a camp in Lake Luzerne, NY, where he experienced adaptive skiing with members of the Ranch who would not be able to experience the sport anywhere else. The Double H Ranch provides personalized services and activities for children with disabilities and life threatening illnesses. Tousignant has also been a frequent visitor to Adirondack Youth Hockey practices throughout the winter, where he has worked with youth hockey players from learn-to-skate through pee wee levels.

Tousignant is now one of 30 finalists for the AHL’s 2014-15 Yanick Dupre Memorial Award, honoring the overall IOA/American Specialty AHL Man of the Year. The league award is named after the former Hershey Bears forward and AHL All-Star who died in 1997 following a 16-month battle with leukemia. The winner of the Yanick Dupre Memorial Award will be announced by the American Hockey League later this month.

The Flames continue their five game road trip tonight in San Antonio. The team doesn’t return home until Saturday, April 11th, when they will take on the Lake Erie Monsters. That Saturday will be Hockey Night in Glens Falls, presented by Bud Light. Pre-game specials will be available at Fitzgerald's in South Glens Falls from 5-6 p.m. and will also feature the American Hockey League Bubble Hockey Finals, sponsored by Labatt Blue. Tickets are still available for that game, and all remaining Flames home games. Visit the Flames box office, call 518-480-3355, or order online at glensfallscc.com.
