The Scouting Report
With a fresh start to the 2013–14 season, the Rochester Americans look to establish themselves in the AHL Western Conference's North Division with a win over division rivals the Utica Comets. In pursuit of their third-consecutive playoff berth, the Americans have been quick to set up a formidable offense. The team boasts two of the league's top 20 scorers through November 5—Phil Varone on the strength of 10 assists and Luke Adam, whose 8 goals in 8 games make him a bigger threat to goalies than a net made by a giant spider lurking behind them.
The Rochester Americans trace their roots back to the 1956–57 AHL season, when they entered the league with a bang by advancing all the way to the Calder Cup championship. They ended up losing the series to the Cleveland Barons, but their fast start did, indeed, portend future success; in a stunning spell of dominance, Rochester won three Calder Cups from 1964–68, losing in the championship series in 1966–67, the one season they failed to capture the title. The Amerks seized Calder Cup glory again in 1983, 1987, and 1996 for a total of six championships. Today, the Amerks are in their 31st season as the AHL affiliate of the Buffalo Sabres and remain one of the league’s most storied franchises.
