March 15, 2012 - The League’s Geographic Center moves 13 miles East as we welcome the Adirondack Jr Wings, the Connecticut Oilers and the Portland Junior Pirates to the fold for the 2012-2013 campaign. All three teams have purchased franchises from Empire members. The Oilers (Norwalk, CT) and Pirates (Saco, ME) are the new owners of the CD and Glades franchises respectively and are second clubs of their EJHL franchises. The Jr Wings purchased the dormant Uncle Sam’s franchise in Troy, NY. Uncle Sam’s was a founding member of the Empire League in 1997. Feature articles and tryout information on each club will appear on the site shortly as we begin the transition from last season to next season.
