RUSH NAMED FINALIST FOR FIVE ECHL TEAM AWARDS

(RAPID CITY, S.D.)—The Rapid City Rush, proud ECHL affiliate of the NHL’s Calgary Flames, has been named as a finalist in five categories for the 2023-24 ECHL Team Awards.

The Rush organization is nominated for Specialty Jersey of the Year (Military Appreciation), Most Creative Ticket Package of the Year (Lightsaber Package), and the Inclusive Spirit Award. Individually, Rush Director of Sales Alex Lasky is a finalist for Ticket Sales Professional of the Year, and Director of Corporate Fulfillment Georgia Veatch is a finalist for Corporate Partnership Professional of the Year.

“It is always an honor to be nominated for league awards,” said Rush President Jared Reid. “I am proud of our group that we have here in Rapid City. We are all excited to see our hard work recognized year after year.”

Rapid City won the Specialty Jersey of the Year award in 2022-23 for its Military Appreciation Night jerseys. This year, it’s a finalist in the same category. The team collaborated with local artist Aaron Pearcy to design the jersey, which commemorates the 80th anniversary of D-Day.

The Rush’s Lightsaber Ticket Package let fans score a lightsaber along with a game ticket for Star Wars Night on December 30. Sensory Friendly Night, Night in the Rush Dreamhouse, and the Rush’s growing relationship with local Native American businesses and organizations earned Rapid City a nomination for the Inclusive Spirit Award.

The annual ECHL Team Awards honors teams and individuals across the league in numerous categories for their accomplishments during the season. The ECHL will announce the 2023-24 award winners at the ECHL Hockey Summer Meetings in Las Vegas on June 26.
