Connecticut Oilers New Arena Ready August 9, 2012 8:54 AM

The sparkling new SONO Ice House will be ready to open its doors later this month and it will house the city’s first hockey team in a half-century, the Connecticut Oilers of the Empire Junior Hockey League.

Ryan Hughes, a lifelong resident of Stamford, will serve as president of the Oilers, Stephan Seeger will be general manager and Eric Lind, who was drafted by the NHL’s Pittsburgh Penguins in 1997 and most recently was an assistant coach with the Yale University men’s hockey program, will coach the team.

The Oilers–named after the Norwalk Home Oilers semi-pro team of the 1950s and 60’s–will field a three-tier program with an A team (ages 17-20), B team (16-19) and U16 team (15-16), and will give some of Fairfield County’s elite hockey players an attractive option right in their backyard.

Rosters were selected after tryouts in April and the team will christen its new ice with its home opener on Sept. 8.
