CORNWALL, Ontario – The Cornwall River Kings announced Friday morning that they would not be participating in this year’s LNAH season, citing a lack of community support for the decision.
“Owner Steven Moreau has informed the league of the unfortunate development,” a press release from the River Kings reads. “Sadly, the decision comes on the heels of an off-season that has seen General Manager Rick Lalonde put together perhaps the most exciting roster the River Kings have ever had.”
Season ticket holders have been given three options as to what to do with their tickets.
They have been told that they can donate the cost of their tickets to cover expenses incurred in the off-season, they can hold on to them in case the River Kings return to the LNAH in the 2017-2018 season, or they can ask for a full-reimbursement which will be paid out across the season.
“The River Kings ownership and staff would like to thank the loyal local hockey fans who have supported the team since 2012,” the press release reads in closing.
The River Kings have been in Cornwall since 2012.
