Olie the Goalie Leaving the Tri-Cities

Posted: Updated:

Kennewick, WA

Tri-City Americans owner Olie Kolzig is moving out of the Tri-Cities after building a house here in 2005.   A month ago, Kolzig took a job with the Washington Capitals to be an Associate goalies coach.  

Today, we found out that the family plans to move to Florida where the Capitals organization will fly Kolzig out to both minor league affiliates to help coach their young goaltenders.

Now he's not done mentoring Ams netminder's and he is still a Tri-City owner.  He plans to visit the Americans every 6 weeks or so once the season starts, to help out the team.
