“On behalf of Dick Garber and myself, as we celebrate our tenth year, we are grateful to our great fans, the season ticket holders, the Great Lakes Bay Region’s corporate community and the Saginaw County tax payers that have supported the downtown crown jewel the Dow Event Center," said Spirit president and managing partner Craig Goslin. “The Spirit team truly belongs to the entire region as the breakdown of our ticket buyers and corporate support base shows that 45% come from Saginaw County, 32% from Midland County, 17% from Bay County and 6% from others.

"The fan experience is our focus and for 10 years, nobody in our business has done it any better than the dedicated and committed people that make up the staff of the Saginaw Spirit. We are proud of our people and what the Spirit adds economically and socially to the Great Lakes Bay Region and we look to the next 10 years to do it all better and better each game.

“We want to invite our fans and the entire region to continue to catch the Spirit with our new year ten logo. The year ten logo features the Spirit eagle backed by ‘wings’ forming a the roman numeral ‘X’ to signify ten years of Spirit hockey, and will be featured in a full color version and a commemorative black and silver version. The year ten logo is consistent with the Spirit brand while at the same time, it provides a powerful connection to the excitement and passion that our region has experienced during our first nine years of Spirit hockey. The new logo is the fifth incarnation of the Spirit brand in addition to the three primary logos that we have used."
