Will the Indiana Ice return?

With the Indiana Fuel (ECHL) currently in town, will the Indiana Ice return to the USHL, or is the Ice have a permanent stake in its heart?

Paul Sjkodt's goal is to bring the Ice back. They still have a stake in the league, but the problem is venue. The Pan Am Plaza rink closed, Bankers Life Fieldhouse is too impractical, and the Coliseum is already occupied by the Fuel.

In fact, that is the first priority of the Lyceum Pavilion: http://lyceumpark.com/

I hope so, but I doubt it, at least as long as the ECHL is there.

If the Ice are to return, they'll be fighting the state of Indiana to do it. And they will have to build a rink.

Don't mean to necro a thread so hard, but has there been an update in their status?


I never did hear a final nail being put in their coffin, and cursory searches show no news (or team activity) in over a year, but at the time they were staying positive for a return still.

If they were to return, the announcement would come a year in advance. Most likely the next time a team wants to expand or move up they will buy the dormant franchise and relocate it. I believe each year the team is forced to pay a fee to stay dormant and not forfeit the franchise so the owner does should hopefully have some semblance of a plan for the team.
