The list of Rochester Americans Alumni scheduled to attend the Amerks Home Opener on Thursday, Oct. 13 climbed past 50 this week.  As announced last week, the former Amerks players and coaches will participate in a red carpet event, then will be introduced on the ice in a pre-game ceremony before the 2011-12 Amerks play the first home game of the franchise’s 56th American Hockey League season at 7:05 p.m versus the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.
 
The red carpet event is scheduled to begin at 4:30 p.m. when the current Amerks players enter The Blue Cross Arena.  Following that, fans will be able to re-live the storied history of the Rochester Americans by watching Alumni walk the red carpet, where they will sign autographs and pose for pictures.  The list of scheduled attendees includes 13 Amerks Hall of Famers, 14 Amerks Calder Cup champions and 13 former Amerks captains.
