We're not going to pretend we know what we're talking about on this front, because if it's Phantoms news and it's not related to hockey ops, we're probably not even in a position to guess.
It does appear to be important news, however, so we're passing it along. According to Tim McManus at the Glens Falls Post-Star, Mike Thompson has been fired as the Vice President of Business Operations for the Adirondack Phantoms.
Owner Rob Brooks told The Post-Star that Chris Porreca has been promoted to the new position of Executive Vice President. Porreca was previously director of corporate sales. The team will also hire a Vice President of Ticket Sales.
Rob Brooks said that a change was needed because "the business model" was not where it needed to be. More from Rob Brooks and other players in the story as the night goes on.
We'll leave the speculation out for now, because again, it's not like we know what we're talking about here. Just passing along the news. For more, be sure to check in with Tim at the Post-Star.
