River Kings won’t play in upcoming season

CORNWALL – The Cornwall River Kings will not be playing in the upcoming LNAH season.

Owner Steven Moreau cited a “lack of community support” in deciding Friday the hockey team would not be playing in the upcoming season.

The league has been informed of the decision, the team said in a news release.

In April 2016, Moreau said the River Kings needed to raise $700,000 to keep the team afloat for the 2016-17 season.

The last update was in that initial notice to reporters, where the team had raised a total of $124,000 as of April 15, 2016.

People who have season tickets will be mailed about several options for their tickets.

They can donate the value to cover off-season expenses for the team, hold their tickets should the River Kings return next season or get a refund “which will be reimbursed throughout the regular season.”

The Cornwall River Kings have been in Cornwall since 2012.
