CORNWALL – The Cornwall Nationals of the Federal Hockey League have ceased operations, effective immediately.
“This is a really sad day for hockey in Cornwall,” said Rodney Rivette, owner/president. “Unfortunately, due to our financial situation, we can no longer continue.”
Saturday night’s attendance was announced at 358 in what turned out to be the team’s last game at the Ed Lumley Arena inside the civic complex.
“We’ve exhausted every avenue possible to save the team,” said Rivette. “This is so unfortunate because owner Will Beauvais has done everything possible to make this work.”
The organization would like to thank its small but loyal fan base as well as all local sponsors and volunteers.
