I wouldn't be surprised to see them stay out of the league for longer than a year unfortunately. They might even end up moving to another town as there might just be too much competition in the area for them to thrive (ie. NHL, possible NCAA etc.).
The dispersal draft is scheduled for today I believe.
Looks like St. Louis is sitting out a year while a new facility is being built. Hope to see them back next year that is an excellent sports/hockey town!
Do you know where I can get information on this... specifically the new facility that they're building?
It just seems kind of surprising. No brand of minor hockey has ever worked out here. The Missouri River Otters of the UHL jush finished up what is supposed to be their last season here. The St Louis Sting was a junior team that used to play here They lasted a while but, they're gone. I guess what I'm getting at here is that I'm surprised to hear that a they'd be spending the money to build a facility.
Can someone tell me what ended up happening to the St Louis franchise? I see that they're not listed as a team on the USHL website and the West division is lacking a team, but I also don't see a Detroit team.
It is my understanding that St. Louis is taking a year off and will be back in the USHL in the future. They do not have a team right now, which is why they are not listed on ushl.com this season. Where did the Detroit thing come from? There wasn't a team in Detroit last season and I never heard plans of having a team in Detroit this season either, which would explain why you couldn't find one.
