News broke this morning in Germany that our friends, the Hamburg Freezers are set to fold from the DEL unless a buyer is found for the club by May 24. The current owner of the Freezers is more than capable of supplying the funds to pay for the license but is refusing to as he and the group are wanting to sell the club so they can focus on Berlin's DEL team, stating that they 'will not opperate two teams in the DEL'.
An incredibly big kick in the teeth for the Freezers and their fans, the owners basically saying they'll force the team to fold unless someone buys them within the next week.
Freezers already have a large proportion of their roster signed up for the upcoming season, leaving question marks over their future. Players such as;
Defencemen - 2005 1st Round Draft Pick, Matt Pelech 2003 7th Round Draft Pick, Mathiue Roy 2003 9th Round Draft Pick, Sean Sullivan
