Over the course of six seasons, Don Nachbaur molded the Tri-City Americans into one of the top teams in the WHL. Under his guidance, the Americans won back-to-back U.S. Division banners and a WHL regular season title in 2007-08.
Don left the Americans in July to take a job with the Binghamton Senators of the AHL. I thought it was only fitting, since he won't be here tonight tosee the Americans unveil their second U.S. Division banner, to ask Don tooffer a word of congratulations to his former team.
In a Herald exclusive, via telephone from Binghamton, N.Y., here is Don'smessage.
