CHARLOTTE PUTS A CHECK ON MOVE TO THE AHL
Published March 22, 1995
The ECHL Charlotte Checkers are refusing an offer to move to the AHL. Team President Carl Scheer said yesterday the team has removed its AHL application and will remain in the ECHL. Scheer said the team had "made remarkable progress in the ECHL" and felt that "with our current business plan we can help the ECHL grow into a first-class minor league." ECHL Commissioner Pat Kelley announced that the Richmond team will also stay in the league, with Hampton Roads and South Carolina also "a very good possibility to stay" (Cliff Mehrtens, CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 3/22).
