Rochester Americans Decide to Settle for Participation Trophy

Rochester, NY – This week the Rochester Americans decided as a team to settle for a Participation Trophy and let the Syracuse Crunch move on in the AHL Calder Cup Playoffs.

Amerks Fans were a little upset that their favorite team was swept in the first round in seemingly easy fashion but “hope everyone had fun out there.”

It was the first time the Americans had been in the playoffs since 2014 and didn’t want to seem too cocky in their first year back. Maybe next year? Probably not.
