Checkers

Still the champs. Charlotte Checkers executives and staffers get a chuckle out of pointing out that their reign has yet to end.

Charlotte won the Calder Cup — the American Hockey League’s championship trophy — in June 2019. The next season ended early, and without a champion being crowned, because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Then came 2020-21, when the AHL played an abbreviated regular season without playoffs.

The Checkers were one of three teams that didn’t play at all because of concerns over player health and anticipated attendance restrictions. On Friday, Charlotte’s hockey team, finally, takes the ice again at Bojangles Coliseum — a mere 590 days after their last home game on March 11, 2020 — and begin defense of their 2019 title in earnest.

Executives from the arena, operated by the Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority, and the Checkers spoke with CBJ during a recent media event. The setting: The Connector, a $20 million, 35,000-square-foot space that links the coliseum with Ovens Auditorium. The additional space gives both venues access to new offices and storage areas on the lower level and, more importantly, additional restrooms, concessions areas, a full-service kitchen and gathering areas on the upper floor.
