The Green Mountain Arena in Morrisville will be home to Vermont’s first professional hockey team starting this fall, says the News and Citizen. The team will be called the Green Mountain Rock Crushers and is part of the Federal Hockey League. The arena currently holds about 400 people, but there are plans to increase seating capacity to about 1,000 people and update dressing rooms with the announcement of the team’s arrival. The team hopes to draw from Vermont’s northernmost counties, as well as the southern part of Quebec. The Rock Crushers is one of two teams added to the initial 6-team league this year. The home opener is scheduled Oct.. 29 against the defending league champs, N.Y.’s Akwesasne Warriors. “…so far the response from the community has been really positive,” says General Manager Andy Makal.
