Mississippi RiverKings suspend operations for 2018-2019 season

Recommended Posts


HUNTERSVILLE, NC (May 24, 2018) – The Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL) on Thursday announced the Mississippi RiverKings will be suspending play for the 2018-2019 season.

“This has been a very difficult decision for Robin Hurdle,” said President Jim Combs. “In addition to their tremendous charitable contributions to Southaven and the surrounding communities, the RiverKings have been an outstanding league partner for the past seven seasons. On behalf of the league and its Board of Governors, I would like to thank Robin for her efforts. The league is actively seeking new ownership in order to bring the team back for the 2019-2020 season.”

Came out of nowhere to me. Was not expecting this. So sad. I hope Hockey returns back to there soon

Yes, was going to say the same thing, I know attendance hasn't been as great the past couple of years, but was shocked to see this when I looked at the site a couple of minutes ago. Hopefully someone will come in and bring the team back in 2019-2020, but as with others what looks promising at 1st doesn't always end up with a happy ending. Thoughts are with all the Riverkings fans, we here in Roanoke had to go 10 years before we got another shot.
