It's been a long time coming, but YES, pro hockey will return to the Cross Insurance Arena for the 2018-2019 season!

The Cross Insurance Arena Board of Trustees announced that Comcast Spectacor, the parent company of Spectra, will relocate their newly acquired Alaska Aces ECHL franchise to Portland. This is fabulous news to hockey fans! The team hasn't been named yet, but the players will be impressed by the new state of the art locker room and training facilities. The Cross Insurance Arena spent $33 million dollars to renovate the space.

There will be a big celebration soon and kudos to everyone involved in bringing professional hockey back to town!
