The 2008-09 season was a disappointing one for the Atlanta Thrashers, ending with a fourth place finish in the Southeast Division, but some key additions may turn things around for the 2009-10 season. Newly added veterans Pavel Kubina (defence) and Nik Antropov (right wing) should help mold talented young players like Zach Bogosian (defence), Bryan Little (centre), Tobias Enstrom (defence) and Evander Kane (centre/left wing and fourth overall in this year’s draft), and might even give the team the edge they need to revisit the playoffs. As head coach John Anderson enters his second season at the helm, the players are now more familiar with his coaching style, so expect a more cohesive and effective playing style from the team. The best way to see how it all plays out is live and in person, so get your Philips Arena tickets and watch the Atlanta Thrashers in action!
The Thrashers began play in 1999, the same year downtown Atlanta saw the completion of the Philips Arena, one of the most sophisticated facilities in the NHL. Designed specifically for the Thrashers as well as the NBA Hawks, it offers unparalleled sightlines and state-of-the-art amenities.
Atlanta welcomed the return of the NHL in 1999 with the arrival of the Thrashers. Previously home to the Flames, Atlanta had been without an NHL team for nearly 20 years when the Flames were sold to a group of Calgary businessmen.
Atlanta is one of the fastest growing cities in the country and boasts a rabid fan base and great teams. The chances of getting Thrashers tickets are therefore slimmer than you might expect, so don't hesitate to order yours today.
