In his new role, he will serve as the team’s Vice President of Communications and the “Voice of the Spirit” for all of the Saginaw Spirits game broadcasts. In addition to broadcasting the OHL contests, Ficorelli will assist with corporate sales, season ticket and group sales efforts.

“We are extremely happy for Terry as he moves on to the OHL,” stated Paul Pickard, IHL President/CEO. “We have enjoyed working with him and wish Terry nothing but the best in his new endeavor.”

Ficorelli has been broadcasting hockey for over 30 years and has called more than 3,000 consecutive games. He began his career with the Kalamazoo Wings in the International Hockey League during the 1974-75 season. The Detroit native will be leaving the Muskegon Fury after 13 years with the organization.

Ficorelli will join the Spirit in early December.
