Hockey Returning to the Star City

The United Hockey League has announced that they will bring an expansion team to the Roanoke Civic Center starting with the 2005-2006 season. Roanoke has been without a hockey team this year for the first time since the 1979-80 season after the ECHL suspended operations of the Roanoke Express. The Roanoke Times has more here. The new team will be the 15th team in the UHL and will join Richmond as the only southern teams in the Missouri-based league.

A new team name will be determined through a contest and will be announced at an exhibition game in April. The game will be played at the Roanoke Civic Center between the UHL's Richmond RiverDogs and Motor City Mechanics. Personally I'd like to see them bring back the Roanoke Valley Rebels, but I doubt the PC crowd would allow it.
