Growlers Kicked out of St. John's

St. John's city council voted to suspend the Growlers from the arena.  MLSE is looking to relocate the team to Toronto at least temporarily.

After doing a bit more reading on this one it seems like this might be a bit of small town council puffing up feathers because the owner of the Growlers threatened to build his own arena.

Little late here, but a bit of an update. They played their 1st 3 home games in Conception Bay South (about 30-40 minute drive from Mile One). Both sides kissed and made up somewhat in November. They have played 19 home games so far, but at least 3 or 4 were played without fans.

The team struggled on a recent road trip with 7-8 players ending up in COVID protocols. They started to get player back at the end of their recent homestand, sweeping 4 games vs Maine. They sit 2nd in the North Division with a couple of games in hand. Standings will be based on points % as teams will not have equal # of games played.

Thanks for the update, I had been wondering what the situation was there.  Good they made up, good for St.Johns

It took me a second to realize they were Marvel themed and not just terrible spider jerseys. 

Ummmm they are something...for an ECHL team it's not the worst thing ever designed by not great either.
