Port Colborne Coming Back To The 'Shoe

Post by zantimisfit » Sun May 05, 2019 8:44 pm

I've heard from a couple of reliable sources that Port Colborne will have a team in the 'Shoe for the upcoming season. Apparently the Lockport Regals will be moving there because they have sold the team to different owners. Has anybody else heard anything similar or know any more details?

Rocket girl I believe you are correct, going by there website "Lockport will continue to operate team in gojhl". I wonder if that means caledonia is going Midwest.

I've heard they might end up in Port Colborne to. I don't know if that's true or not. But I'd take Lockport over Toffolo's circus any day.

The latest that I heard was that they tried to get ice time in Port but that they couldn't for some reason. Also heard that the OHA wouldn't approve of the move. Why would that be? I have no idea.

The OHF are the ones who blocked the move. The OHA were too busy trying to figure out how
Lockeport, Nova Scotia ever got a franchise in the GOJHL and why they are now just finding out :roll:

I'm confused. Are they Lockport or Buffalo?

So I guess they're Buffalo again. Have they actually moved?

They should just move to the NA3HL and be done with it! Whether it is in Lockport or Buffalo..it all smells the same!

This picture just reminds me what a joke of a franchise "Buffalo/Lockport" has been.

7 skaters on the bench.

3-0 after 1 period.

Get them out.

Been to Lockport NS, nice historic town on the Atlantic coast, seems like more of a nice summer resort town than a hockey hotbed, but what do I know. Then again maybe that explains the attendance figures
