The City of Charlottetown says it will simply cost too much to host an NHL exhibition game.
Coun. Danny Redmond wants to see proof.
For the past two years the city has hosted a portion of the Dallas Stars’ training camp.
Redmond said it would be great to see Island NHLers like Adam McQuaid, Brad Richards or Mark Flood in an actual exhibition game.
“I would dare say we should be researching this with Summerside,’’ Redmond said. “What would it take? If you’re saying we can’t, explain to me why we can’t.’’
