Toronto Predators are thrilled for the opportunity to relocate their franchise to Niagara-on-the Lake!
We are very happy to announce the relocation of the team to Niagara-on-the-Lake (NOTL). NOTL is a historic town known for its famous wineries, located on the Niagara Peninsula about 20 minutes from Niagara Falls. Niagara-on-the-Lake attracts roughly 3.5 million people per year and having the privilege to assemble a team in this prime location is something General Manager Johan Eriksson is thrilled to have. The Niagara-on-the-Lake Predators will continue their tradition and philosophy on the importance of continuing their education and moving players onto colleges and universities.
We want to, first of all, send our thanks to the Canlan Ice Sports “York” that has been our home for several seasons. The Meridian Credit Union Arena, the new home of the Predators, provides an unparalleled rink and training environment. It is a short distance to Brock University and Niagara College and down the road from Vineridge Academy. We look forward to getting involved with the community.
Predators GM Johan Eriksson had this to say: I am of course very happy that we now can make this announcement. NOTL was on the top of our list looking at options for the future. Niagara region has a strong hockey history and a lot of players are coming up the ranks every year. We have a very good setup here and plan to make this a long-term home. Stay tuned for more announcements coming shortly.
