IceGators Suspend Operations for 2016-17 Season

May 16, 2016 - Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL) - Louisiana IceGators News Release

The Louisiana IceGators' General Manager Louis Dumont has announced that the team will suspend operations for the 2016-2017 season.

"Arena renovations will begin at the end of this month at the Cajundome and will run through the end of November," stated GM Louis Dumont. "Available dates during the month of December are also limited. With the Southern Professional Hockey League's 2016-2017 season beginning in October a feasible schedule is simply not available at this time."

Dumont also added, "Countless hours have been spent between myself, the owners, IceGators staff and Cajundome management looking at different scenarios on how we can make this season happen. At this time suspending operations for this season is the best route to take."

"On behalf of the organization we would like to thank our Season Ticket Holders, Corporate Partners, fans and the community for all of your support."
