Franchise history
2007 - 2008: Copper City Chiefs

The Copper City Chiefs were a low-level professional ice hockey team located in Rome, New York. The team was owned by Wayne Premo.

Franchise History[edit | edit source]

The Chiefs joined the NEHL as an expansion team for the 2007-2008 season. When the season was cancelled and the league folded mid-season in January 2008 the Chiefs after playing 8 games had a record of 4 wins and 4 losses. The owners tried to schedule Canadian Sr. teams to complete the remaining the home schedule to no avail. The team was announced as a member of the EPHL on April 22, 2008 but the name was not officially announced until July 2, 2008. However before the 2008-09 EPHL season began the franchise folded in early October 2008. Premo cited arena issues, economic issues, and lack of funds as reasons why the team folded[1]
