AHL TO CONSIDER EXPANSION: BALTIMORE A LEADING CANDIDATE
Published November 30, 1994
AHL President Dave Andrews wants to expand the 16-team league. Portland Pirates owner Tom Ebright, chair of the AHL's expansion committee whose Pirates originally were in Baltimore, said Baltimore could "re-emerge" with the "right ownership and environment." Bob Teck and Alan Gertner, partners in the Gertec Corp. which builds private ice hockey arenas, are possible Baltimore owners. The two have also scouted sites in PA and NJ. The AHL would like to expand by 3-4 teams by next year, with a decision possible by December 16 (Sandra McKee, Baltimore SUN, 11/30).
