SAVANNAH, GA — The Savannah Ghost Pirates have been named finalists in seven categories for the 2022-23 ECHL Team Awards, presented by SponsorCX, which will be presented at the 2023 ECHL Hockey Summer Meetings in Las Vegas on June 28.

The Ghost Pirates have been nominated for Marketing Team of the Year, Specialty Jersey of the Year, Ticket Department of the Year and Team Award of Excellence.

Account Executive Jordan Atkins has been named a finalist for Sales Rookie of the Year. In addition, Director of Broadcasting and Communications Cristiano Simonetta has been nominated for Broadcaster of the Year.

“On behalf of the Zawyer Sports organization, we are proud of the hard work, passion and dedication our staff showed for our first-year team. The league records we set for season ticket sales and sellouts in one season (33 out of 36 home games) result from their efforts,” Zawyer Sports President Bob Ohrablo said. “We are excited that the league has recognized the Ghost Pirates' successes with these nominations!”
