January 28, 2008 - ECHL (ECHL) - Johnstown Chiefs News Release

Johnstown, PA - For the third edition of "The Pow-Wow" on Thursday, January 31 host, and voice of the Chiefs, Ray Schmitt will be joined by guests Mike Sgroi and Mike Knight.

Chiefs' fans of all ages can see the show live from the Lower Works of the Johnstown Brewing Company Restaurant and Pub at 7:30 p.m. For those who miss the live show, a recording of "The Pow-Wow" will be available at

Brought over in a trade from Pensacola on January 8, Sgroi has impressed fans with his combination of toughness and talent. In seven games with the Chiefs, the Toronto, Ontario native has picked up two goals and four assists along with 50 penalty minutes. The 29-year-old is in his eighth pro season, and is having his best year point-wise with 14 goals and 14 assists in 33 games.

Knight is in his third professional season, and first with the Chiefs. Also from Toronto, Ontario, Knight is second among Chiefs defensemen in points with three goals and 12 assists, and second on the team in penalty minutes with 82. Knight spent four games earlier this season with the Binghamton Senators, but did not record a point in four games.

After the show is over, fans are invited to stay for an informal meet-and-greet with the players who will be available for pictures and/or autographs. Throughout the night the Johnstown Brewing Company will be offering their full menu, including their weekly Thursday special, BBQ Night.

The Chiefs' next home game is on February 2 when Dayton comes to town for AAA Night. All AAA members can receive discounted tickets at the War Memorial box office by showing their membership cards. If you can't make that game, be sure to come out for Pittsburgh Steelers Pride Night at 1:00 p.m. on February 3.
