Favorite Checkers memory Our Draught for the Draft event prior to the 2010-11 season. We introduced our secondary logo and new jerseys for the first time as an AHL franchise. It was the start to my most memorable season as a Checkers staff member which included some great playoff wins on our way to the Eastern Conference finals.
