Flags fold, but hockey may stay in Port Huron

The United Hockey League announced on Friday that the Port Huron Flags are ceasing operations immediately.

Unfortunately, the current ownership chose not to move forward with the operation of the franchise.

"We regret that we were not able to go on further with the Port Huron Flags hockey team, but we are happy that there are continued negotiations with others to keep the Flags in Port Huron for the upcoming UHL season," Flags chairman Charlie Barrett said.

“The league owes a lot to Charlie Barrett and the group of civic minded individuals that kept the Flags going the past two years,” stated UHL president/CEO Richard Brosal. “They have allowed us the time to find new ownership that can hopefully be announced in the next couple of weeks."

The UHL hopes to have an announcement in the upcoming weeks regarding a new ownership group that will keep UHL hockey in Port Huron next season.
