Baton Rouge Kingfish hockey coming back??? (press conference tomorrow/Monday)




A press conference will be held Monday with more information.


LINK


There is nothing official yet, but Webb says the local hockey community knows it's coming.


"I just about had tears in my eyes, pure excitement," Ethan Webb, a hockey super fan and player, said.

For him and others, the possibility of a hockey team returning after a 20-year hiatus is exciting.

In 1996, the Baton Rouge Kingfish moved into what was then known as the Riverside Centroplex. The arena was sold out from jerseys to hockey pucks, and even fights.

The Kingfish became somewhat of a hockey team. But the excitement fizzled out over time, and in 2003, the team moved on.

For Webb, a hockey team coming back to Baton Rouge is something he has fantasized about since he was a little kid playing hockey in his Kingfish jersey.

"This is something I have waited on for 13 years... all of a sudden, the potential of a team to come? That's a dream come true," Webb said.

Webb says a hockey game is unlike any sporting event Louisianans are used to but hopes people will give it a chance.

So you mean saving my game jerseys for BRYIH junior Kingfish team wasn’t all a waste then?

I’d go see some hockey games and bring the family if tickets are under $10. If they’re more than $10 don’t expect anybody to go.

they more than likely would have upper level, behind the goal tickets in the upper rows for $10-15 .... but that's a pretty shitty attitude to have in 2022 and perfectly sums up why Baton Rouge can't have nice things

you can't expect to pay $10 a ticket, sit middle of the ice/floor, and pay $2 for a full meal

If they would have named them the Red Sticks, like they should have, they would have never left.

The Kingfish games were a hoot. Went to a bunch of them and always had a blast.

Funny how they interviewed that hockey fan, and in the background the I-10 bridge was at a complete standstill.
