Investors plan to keep Rivermen in Peoria
“To hear people say that I don’t know what I’m going to do, I don’t like basketball, I don’t like this, and to hear some people say they’d spent 25 years going to Rivermen hockey games and for that to end, I’m like we can’t let this happen,” Rogers says.
Rogers says a private investment group including himself and former Rivermen owner Bruce Saurs will own both the prospective Bloomington and Peoria teams. The SPHL still needs to approve both franchise requests.
