the IHA

The International Hockey Association is pleased to announce that all negotiations have been finalised with Ownership groups for the six member teams participating during the 2004-2005 season. The IHA is a AA level professional hockey league comprised of teams in New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan.

A league meeting will take place within the next two weeks in Pittsburgh, where it is expected that IHA Commissioner Alain Lemieux will introduce the Ownership group that will operate in Pittsburgh. Alain Lemieux is a former NHL player, ECHL head coach and the older brother of Mario Lemieux.

The IHA is also wrapping up negotiations with other leagues to finalise its affiliation agreements. An appearence on ESPN2's Cold Pizza morning show is also being scheduled for early September.
