Junior hockey to leave The Rock
The St. John's Fog Devils hockey team has been sold to a new Quebec-based owner, leaving a city-owned stadium without an anchor tenant.
The Fog Devils, who play in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, were founded in 2005 after the Toronto Maple Leafs pulled their farm team from St. John's that year.
St. John's is actually a relatively large community, especially compared to other junior hockey towns like Swift Current, but more and more, it's becoming a question of economics in the CHL.
