ECHL adding team in Portland, Maine

Justin A. Cohn | The Journal Gazette

The ECHL will add a team in Portland, Maine, for the 2018-19 season. The franchise will be the one that had been in Anchorage, Alaska, but suspended operations this year.

Portland is a historically solid market that formerly had an American Hockey League team and will have some immediate geographic rivals like Worcester and Manchester.

What's interesting was the rumor had been that Alaska would go to Reno, Nevada.
