The Danbury Titans hockey team will cease operations after two seasons, effective immediately, according to an email statement from owner Bruce Bennett.
He said the decision was made with a heavy heart. After reassessing the cost of workers' compensation insurance in the State, Bennett decided that it was not financially feasible to continue. Last season's injury list was long and he didn't want Titans staff and players on the ice without proper medical coverage.
The team says tickets holders who put down deposits with the Titans will be contacted about refunds.
Bennett noted that he thought this could be a long-term venture with a lot of success when it was launched. Despite not winning a championship, he said he remains proud of the players and their commitment to the community.
