Deja Vu All Over Again? Strome's Niagara Ice Dogs Sign 20 Year Deal to Stay Local But Play In New Down Town St. Catharines Arena In 2014...And They'll be Keeping Their Name

2

St. Catharines is the largest of 12 Counties in the Niagara Regent, which also includes Niagara Falls. "The Niagara IceDogs will keep their name and make their home in St. Catharines for at least 20 years. Mayor Brian McMullan and team owners Bill and Denise Burke signed a deal Friday at city hall that makes the Ontario Hockey League club the primary tenant for the new downtown arena, expected to open in 2014. The agreement stipulates the franchise does not have to change its name to St. Catharines IceDogs, which had been requested by St. Catharines council, but was never met with favour by the club."
