What and who is LGA585.com ?
LGA585 (formerly LetsGoAmerks) is an independent website devoted to covering the Rochester Americans of the American Hockey League maintained by Keith Wozniak and Eric Bourgeois. By definition this is a blog but we run the site with the same professionalism and integrity that you would expect from a journalist and mainstream media outlet.
Keith started this site in 2007 as because the team was barely being covered anywhere else on a daily basis. I had season tickets, practices were open to the public and I was able to provide information on the team people wanted to know about. The Rochester Americans provide Keith with media credentials which provides access to practices, games and interviews with players, coaches and management. What you read on the site is obtained by putting in the work as some might say, it’s not just reporting and sharing opinions from the sidelines. Keith took some time off for a few years but has been back full time since the start of the 2017/2018 season. He’s at almost every practice and home game getting to know the story behind the team. 99.999% of the tweets you’ll see are from Keith. On a personal level, I have a 14 year old son that plays hockey as well and also spend a lot of time at local rinks.
You may not see Eric’s name on a lot of articles written but he provides a lot of work behind the scene with ideas, editing and history. When Keith isn’t available he’ll take over the Twitter account during games. Eric is a dedicated fan and season ticket holder of decades and has Rochester Americans hockey running through his veins. His knowledge is invaluable for the success of this site.
Our goal is to provide complete coverage of everything surrounding the Rochester Americans hockey team.
The forums are active with fans talking about the team daily. Be warned, it’s sort of like an old corner bar. We’re welcome to anyone new but be aware that we all know each other.
