SPHL Announces Postponement of Bobcats' Opening Weekend
October 14, 2021 - Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL) News Release
HUNTERSVILLE, NC - The Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL) announced Thursday that it has postponed the opening weekend of its newest member, the Vermilion County Bobcats, due to ice conditions that prevented the team from conducting training camp and were not resolved in time to play their inaugural games Friday and Saturday against Peoria.
"I am extremely disappointed for the Bobcats organization and players and the Vermilion County hockey fans who were excited to see professional hockey for the first time in over a year and a half," said Commissioner Doug Price. "But as a matter of safety for the players, it was necessary to postpone these games."
Vermilion County's next scheduled home games are Friday, November 5 (Evansville) and Saturday, November 6 (Quad City). Replacement dates for the two postponed games will be announced later.
