AHA Lapeer Thunder on hold for now
LAPEER — The possibility of an American Hockey League team at the Polar Palace Arena complex has been put on hold for now, says owner Rick Williams GM of MR Spencer Financial Services.
“I own a team in Battle Creek and Battle Creek came to us to purchase the rink, so instead of investing in a team in Lapeer, we are working toward our involvement in the management group at the ice rink in Battle Creek.”
Williams noted that it was just a bit of a curveball that came by him and he couldn’t pass up the opportunity. Interest in the Lapeer area and from the area could still bring a team to the Polar Palace and talks could resume, but Williams said that is in its infancy stage for right now.
“Hockey is alive and well in Lapeer and the fan base would be perfect and the area perfect. We are not ruling out this year, but we have other things in the works right now,” Williams said. — L.P.
