This week it is announced that the Thorold Blackhawks have a new home for this season. Owner, General Manager, and Coach Scott Barnes said "Due to the ongoing renovations at The Frank Doherty Arena, the Thorold Blackhawks will be playing their home games out of the Port Colborne Vale Centre for the upcoming 2022-23 season. With the continued uncertainty of a completion date for the work being done at the arena, and after dealing with two years of COVID issues, the players need a stable home for the season. The City of Thorold helped immensely through this process in an attempt to find alternative solutions but we felt the need to secure stability for the season. We are still the Thorold Blackhawks playing out of Port Colborne and we hope to return to Thorold better than ever for the 2023-24 season. We hope to see all you Hawk fans out this year cheering us on."
You can catch the Hawks in action this year at the Vale Health and Wellness Centre in Port Colborne on Friday and Saturday Nights. The team is looking forward to a stable home and a great season this year!
