Prescott Valley, AZ – The Arizona Sundogs announced today their request and approval from the Central Hockey League, to suspend operations for the 2014-15 season, effective immediately. The franchise will remain a member in good standing in the CHL, despite not participating in this season, in hopes of keeping Sundogs hockey in Prescott Valley for the 2015-16 season.
“I applaud the fans’ support of the team and would have wished for a different outcome,” said Brad Fain, Majority Owner of the Sundogs. “Slower than expected off-season revenue along with other league issues have moved us in this direction. We will actively pursue other opportunities in hopes of keeping Sundogs hockey in Prescott Valley for the 2015-16 season and beyond.”
The team announced that all corporate partners and season ticket holders who have secured their advertising and season seats will be issued a full refund within the next 30 days. The Sundogs ask for everyone’s patience during this transition and ask that you allow time for checks to be issued and mailed accordingly.
Fans are encouraged to continue following them on their website and social media pages, when they announce a sale on all merchandise in the coming days.
All players currently under contract for next season or whose CHL rights were held by the Sundogs, will immediately become free agents.
