JAMESTOWN – Members of the Jamestown Rebels Hockey Team are set to be dispersed to other teams or released sometime today.
According to JuniorHockey.com, COVID-19 restrictions are reeking havoc with most sporting events and the upcoming NAHL season may not come to fruition.
The North American Hockey League approved the dormancy request of the Springfield Blues and Jamestown Rebels last week. Blues’ players have already been picked up by other NAHL teams or released, the Rebels have failed in their efforts to save the season. Jamestown players will be dispersed later today.
Both teams’ season was put in jeopardy by state and local political responses to COVID-19.
The Rebels’ owner Ken Dennis has been shopping for alternative locations including both Wisconsin and South Dakota.
The NAHL 2020-21 season schedule is to be finalized and announced later this week.
