Teams al­ready ey­ing new arena

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier

Ear­lier this week, it was re­ported in La Tribune that Wee­don’s Hockey Ex­perts team, which en­tered the se­nior BeauceBel­lechasse-Fron­tenac hockey league two years ago, is look­ing for a new home and they just might pick the new Pat Burns Arena. New team own­ers, Nolan Poulin and Nicolas Beaulieu, have an­nounced that the team will move to ei­ther Sherbrooke, Windsor or Stanstead.

Al­though he ad­mit­ted that the Fleu­ri­mont (Sherbrooke) lo­ca­tion will prob­a­bly be cho­sen, Nicolas Beaulieu said: “It would be in­ter­est­ing to evolve in­side the new Pat Burns Arena. How­ever, we would be out­side of the Beauce-Bel­lechas­seFron­tenac league’s ter­ri­tory.” In Windsor, the down side is that the team would not be al­lowed to touch the prof­its of the beer sales at that arena.

Ac­cord­ing to the new own­ers of the team, the team could at­tract more than 300 spec­ta­tors per match at ei­ther one of the pos­si­ble lo­ca­tions; al­most dou­ble the amount of spec­ta­tors in Wee­don.
