Halton Ravens relocate to St. George

Awesome news for St. George Dukes fans. Beats heading out of town to watch a game.

Know the organization so it should be a competitive team as it has been for the last few seasons since they bought the team. They love signing former Corvairs as well so easy relocation.

5 minutes further by pure driving distance from previous Burlington home. Bigger issue was the horrible fan experience with seating there and the fact fan attendance was not great.

Another "sh** hole of an Arena" for the GMHL. I hope Niagara has increased their transportation budget.

Harry Howelll was a great rink when I covered their one off game their last season in Halton. I heard it was push back from the powers that be in Hamilton that didn't want to seem to "endorse" sudo Junior A hockey in their city. (They probably wanted to protect the Bulldogs fanbase. Although no threat in terms of fans).

The senior A team is playing out of Harry Howell that relocated from Dundas for this season while they do updates to JL Grightmyre, could be that reason too... But then again - the gmhl has a bad reputation of being moved from cities cause of their background .
