It could be one and done for the new hockey team in Glens Falls. The future of the Adirondack Flames is in question, as a pending deal with the American Hockey League could move the club to the West Coast after only one season at the Civic Center.
Glens Falls is used to saying goodbye to hockey teams by now, but it was only eight months ago that officials announced the Adirondack Flames would bring American League Hockey back to the Civic Center…
“Welcome to the three-peat AHL city, Glens Falls, New York!”
After no offers were made for the Glens Falls Civic Center at a public auction last month, two bidders have come forward to the city government with plans to purchase the publicly owned arena.
The city has been looking to sell its arena, which is standing in about $1.3 million in debt. No bidders stepped forward at the public auction in August, where the city had set the minimum bid at $1.5 million. But since then, the aging arena has attracted some attention.
