This one really hurts. Despite the efforts of the passionate hockey fans of Cornwall, the drive to come up with $370,000 in in under a week to save the River Kings has come up short.
The North American Hockey League (LNAH) gave a group of fans trying to save the franchise until 4 PM on Monday to come up with the money. The plan was for the hockey club to be owned by the fans. A plan that is not far fetched in the world of sports today. There are some sports franchises globally who still have fan ownership, including the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League.
Randy Rivette led the charge to help save the franchise and thanked the fans for their efforts and also thanked the league for giving the city the opportunity to try and save the team.
Even though the goal wasn’t reached, this is another great example of the people of Cornwall coming together in times of need. CLICK HERE for more on this story.
