February 25, 2018 – “We’re very excited to be investing in another vibrant New Jersey hockey community,” BBSG CEO Murry Gunty said. Black Bear Sports Group (BBSG), Inc. has acquired substantially all of the assets of the Jersey Shore Arena in Wall Township, NJ. The Arena houses three sheets of ice and serves youth hockey and other ice sports participants in Monmouth County. In addition, the Arena features a pro shop, laser tag, the Penalty Box Café, and a high performance training gym utilized by youth and high school hockey clubs. Murry Gunty expressed “we are proud to be the home to over 15 local high school hockey programs and the Jersey Shore Wildcats youth hockey club. We look forward to modernizing the facility to provide our customers with a first-class ice rink in this proud hockey state.”
Since 2015, while also being CEO and founder of Blackstreet Capital Holdings, LLC, Gunty has been seeking investments in sports and entertainment facilities and youth sports events. “Our arenas are clean and professionally managed, and offer world class recreational offerings. We focus on: ice arenas in metropolitan areas with compelling demographics; markets with a National Hockey League club presence; and arenas with an existing Tier I or Tier II youth hockey presence,” says Gunty. BBSG currently owns and operates eight arenas across the United States with a total of 15 sheets of indoor ice and two indoor turf fields.
