Black Bear Sports Group has finalized a multi-year marketing and hockey equipment procurement agreement with Pure Hockey.
“We have an amazing group of operators that will support the growth and placement of all our hockey players to the highest levels.”
D.C.’s public skating rink, the Fort Dupont Ice Arena, was supposed to close for renovations after this weekend — but then operators found out how much the revamp was going to cost.
“We are deeply committed to growing girls hockey and providing girls hockey with the same resources we provide boys hockey,” said Murry N. Gunty, Founder and CEO of Black Bear Sports Group. “We have an extraordinary team of women leading this effort and an amazing group of initial founding members in the girls division.”
“Our mission is to grow hockey participation in the local communities our ice arenas serve,” said Black Bear Sports Group Founder and CEO, Murry Gunty.
“We are excited to continue our Connecticut expansion with this transaction,” said Murry N. Gunty, Founder and CEO of Black Bear. “The Enfield Twin Rinks has a rich history of skating and youth hockey and we’re thrilled to continue the operations of the MassConn United and the partnerships with the local high schools and youth clubs. The Eastern Hockey Federation and the New England Girl’s Hockey League are the top youth leagues and the country and we our proud to have our United teams compete in these elite leagues.”
“What the Youngstown Phantoms are for us is a chance to give young men the ability to pursue their dreams, whether it’s pro hockey, college hockey or they just want to play junior hockey. We thought that the whole framework in Youngstown of giving young men the chance to pursue their dreams should be the same for young women, so that’s why we thought Youngstown would be a great location for it,” Gunty said.
“We continue to use our extraordinary people and facilities to help grow the game of hockey and improve access for all our families and players of all ages,” said Murry N. Gunty, Founder and CEO of Black Bear Sports Group, Inc. “Adult hockey is a critical part of our business and I am thrilled that we continue to focus on improving the experience for all our adult players.”
“We are excited to expand our Connecticut presence with this transaction, as Connecticut is such a strong hockey market,” said Murry N. Gunty, Founder and CEO of Black Bear. “More importantly, I am thrilled to have Bob Crawford join our organization to help us continue to build out our hockey business.”
