The newest member of the Federal Hockey League is going to be known as the Danbury Titans. Owner Bruce Bennett made the announcement yesterday afternoon. The Danbury man owns Bruce Bennett Nissan in Wilton and says he liked the name, but it's a coincidence that the Titan is a new vehicle for Nissan. It's a diesel powered pick up truck.
Bennett has a 6 year lease with Eagle Ice Sports, owner of the Danbury Ice Arena.
Phil Esposito was the head coach of the Danbury Whalers, the last team to play at the Danbury Ice Arena. The team is inactive after Eagle Ice Sports and Whalers ownership could not come to agreement on a new lease for the Danbury Ice Arena. He will be the coach of the new Danbury team.
There will be six teams in the Federal Hockey League including the recently announced Stateline Whalers in Brewster.
