Published September 15, 1994
Tampa Bay Lightning Governor David LeFevre announced IN- based Huber, Hunt & Nichols Inc., which built the ThunderDome, Chicago's United Center, and Anaheim's Arrowhead Pond has been contracted to build the team's new downtown arena by fall '95. Architect Ellerbe Becket Inc. said it is likely the Lightning will play in the ThunderDome next season since construction will run 15-17 months. But Tampa official Bob Leighton said the team has not contacted the city about extending its lease (TAMPA TRIBUNE, 9/15).
