GEORGE NOORY IN LAS VEGAS: Get tickets now -- be there June 9!

(LAS VEGAS, KXNT)–The Las Vegas Wranglers, the pro hockey franchise still looking for a new home,will take a ‘voluntary suspension’ from its league, the ECHL, to find a home rink.

The Wranglers lost their lease at the Orleans, and plans to build a rink and facilities on the roof of the Plaza Hotel and Casino downtown recently fell through because of high costs. Finding a new home will take a year. The Wranglers wont play next season.

“The Wranglers have been granted a voluntary suspension by the league’s board of governors, and they are working diligently toward securing a new facility as they return to the ice in the 2015-16 season”, said Joe Babik, spokesman for ECHL.

“They’re still a member of the league, its just they wont be participating in any on-ice activities. They have all the rights associated with being a member of the league, they just wont be participating in any games or anything along those lines.”, Babik added.
