Although Ebright didn't say it, his AHL team is almost certainly moving to Portland, Maine, for next season, and in its place will be an East Coast Hockey League team.

A beam supporting the roof of the LancerLot arena began to buckle under the stress of 16 inches of snow and 40 mph winds.Within minutes, the decision was made to evacuate the building.
