Agreement in place could result in Foundation acquiring Plymouth, Michigan, facility by first half of 2015

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo./PLYMOUTH, Mich. - The USA Hockey Foundation and Compuware Arena have an agreement in place, that subject to due diligence, could result in the Foundation acquiring the Plymouth, Michigan, facility by the first half of 2015.

“Both parties felt it best to make public that there is intention to move forward with a sale, however, there are many steps in the process left to complete and nothing is final at this point,” said Mike Vellucci, representing Compuware Arena on behalf of owner Peter Karmanos. “It’s important to note that the Compuware youth program would remain at Compuware Arena and be supported by Mr. Karmanos. Further, Mr. Karmanos will continue to own the Plymouth Whalers. While there are likely to be questions, out of respect for the on-going process and confidentiality involved, we’ll have no further comment.”

“Our intention is to relocate the National Team Development Program to the facility and also use it to host and showcase other USA Hockey programs and international events,” said Ron DeGregorio, president of The USA Hockey Foundation and USA Hockey, Inc. “In addition, keeping the current users of the building is important to both us and Pete Karmanos. There are a number of issues we’re still working through, and while I know people will have questions, we’ll have nothing further to say until a final resolution is reached.”
