We just received official confirmation of the league's decision to revoke our franchise. Needless to say we're disappointed the league made the decision they did, as we had a dedicated group of players and staff ready to finish out the final month and a half. We're still investigating different paths, first and foremost is an appeal of the decision. Another option we're seriously considering is playing an independent schedule the rest of the season, possibly involving a mix of nearby junior teams from the MnJHL, NA3HL, NAHL, and NOJHL. At any rate, we do not intend for the Clydesdales to have played their final game. Over the spring and summer, we'll be seriously considering all options for the Clydesdales to compete within in 2013-14 and the foreseeable future.
Above all, we want to thank all the fans, sponsors and other supporters we've had here in the Northland. Without your help, we wouldn't have made it as far as we did. We hope you enjoyed watching our boys play and please, continue to follow them as they move on in their hockey careers. They're the ones we've all worked so hard for.
