What is the name of the team and is it an AHL team?
The nickname of the team will be announced at a future date. The Portland Hockey team will be a part of the ECHL Premier AA Hockey League.
Is the team in any way connected to the Portland Pirates?
There will be no connection to the new team and the Portland Pirates. However, we will do the best we can to accommodate past season ticket holders.
Will the Portland team be affiliated with an NHL team?
Although there is no affiliate yet, the ECHL will seek an affiliation for the team down the road. The team currently has no affiliation with the Philadelphia Flyers and this has no effect with the Flyers' affiliation with the Reading Royals.

Where can I purchase tickets to the games and when will they be available?
Tickets will be available on the team’s website and at the Cross Insurance Arena Trusted Choice box office entering the 2018 season for individual games. Tickets will be available upon release of the season schedule. Contact Bill at Bill_Omalley@comcastspectacor.com if you are interested in ticket packages.
