SPINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Following Sunday’s final game of the American Hockey League season, the Springfield Falcons packed up their gear and went home.
Whether the players will return for another season will probably remain unknown until later this week, which is when Mayor Domenic Sarno expects to hear from the team’s owner.

The Mayor said the news media is at least partly responsible for the Falcons’ uncertain future: “The Falcons play every weekend, and I’m there at many of the games at times, and the media’s not covering them. It seems to be the drive by stuff when you’ll cover a funeral than a celebration,” Sarno said.
A report out of Arizona said Springfield could be without an American Hockey League franchise next season if the Arizona Coyotes move the franchise to Tucson.
