NAHL Springfield Staying Put

The Springfield Junior Blues will remain in Springfield after the current season under new ownership that’s still subject to approval by the North American Hockey League.

Rick Maiocco, president of the team’s board of directors, said Tuesday that a tentative agreement has been reached with Revolution Sports Management to buy the Junior A hockey team that’s played in Springfield since 1993.

The Junior Blues, who finish their regular-season schedule this weekend before starting the playoffs, have been a not-for-profit operation relying heavily on volunteers the past five years.

Th Blues were contacted two months ago by Joe “Mac” MacConnell of Revolution Sports. MacConnell is senior vice president of AutoXcel, a franchisor in automotive exterior paint and interior repair services. He lives in Shiloh, Ill., near Belleville. His partners in Revolution Sports are Ken Tomaro (who lives in New York state) and Ken Orlando (Pennsylvania).

Revolution Sports purchased the New Mexico Renegades of the Junior A Western States Hockey League last July. The Renegades went 18-26-2 this season, losing a first-round playoff series.

This leaves the St. Louis Bandits on the clock. A move to Johnstown is likely at the end of the season.
