Maineiacs On The Move and Trouble in Moose Jaw???
The Pipeline Show has learned that the Lewiston Maineiacs have asked the QMJHL for permission to bolt Maine.
The club which finished 4th in the 2007 Memorial Cup sent a letter to the league today, hoping to move for next season.
The word is team Owner Mark Just would like to land in Boisbriand which is just outside of Montreal.
If the Maineiacs do leave Lewiston it would mean the Quebec league would be without an American squad. 6 Years ago the franchise relocated to Lewiston from Sherbrooke.
Another junior hockey note but out west now, Guy Flaming heard tonight at the Regina Pats/Oil Kings game that word is the city has turned down the request of the Moose Jaw Warriors to build a new arena, meaning the only thing the club can do is recycle the crushed can...again. Will it meet the WHL's standards or will it mean the Warriors are on the move. Can you say the Victoria Warriors?
