“We are glad to once again have Gwinnett as our ECHL affiliate,” said Coyotes vice-president of hockey operations and assistant general manager Brad Treliving said in a statement.
“The Gladiators are a model franchise in the ECHL and we look forward to the continued development of future Phoenix Coyotes in Gwinnett.”
