St. Charles Chill won’t play in 2014-15, looking for new owners

The St. Charles Chill are looking for new owners. The team previously announced in May that it would be ceasing operations, but a new report from Andy Strickland suggests there’s an attempt to find new owners for the team in order to return for the 2015-16 season.

The Chill were awful last season. They finished last in the 10-team CHL with just 11 wins and 28 points. To put that in perspective, the 9th-place squad (Wichita) had 27 wins and 63 points. Attendance was slightly better, coming in 7th in the CHL with an average of 2,585 fans a night.

There hasn’t been much discussion regarding the Chill since they elected to cease operations. The team’s website has been shuttered. It’s nice to hear a renewed attempt to save the Chill, but you have to wonder how feasible hockey in St. Charles might be considering the failed experiment in 2013-14.
