From the Moncton Wildcats: “Due to unfortunate circumstances & unexpected player travel, we have had to cancel the fan farewell tonight. A big thank you to everyone in the community for your continued support. We look forward to seeing you next year as we welcome you to our new home downtown Moncton!” Meanwhile…The Wildcats dumped Roger Shannon as director of hockey operations yesterday…those two things are probably not related.
