P.E.I. Rocket president Serge Savard Jr. has again thrown cold water on speculation the team was on the move to Quebec.
There were rumblings out of Trois-Rivieres Tuesday that the community was targeting the Rocket as the community builds a new arena.
“I’ve never spoken to anyone with Trois Rivieres,” Savard told The Guardian Tuesday afternoon. “This is just false, false, false.”
This is not the first time Savard, who is also the team's governor, has had to deny reports of such a move.
“The Rocket is here in P.E.I., that’s it – end of story.”
