IHL EXPANSION COULD BE HEADED FOR TORONTO
Published October 25, 1994
The Raptors have joined the Clippers as the only two NBA teams considering an application for an IHL franchise. Raptors spokesperson Tom Mayenknecht said that the team has "preliminary" interest in purchasing an IHL club, but added that a hockey club could not be acquired until the completion of a arena -- which could be at least three years from now. Mayenknecht also said that team officials are speaking with other leagues, such as arena football and indoor soccer (Chris Young, TORONTO STAR, 10/25).
