Team foldings

The Amarillo Gorillas and the Corpus Christi IceRays folded and both were replaced by a North American Hockey League team.


On June 1, 2010, the Central Hockey League (CHL) and the International Hockey League (IHL) announced that they would merge and play under the CHL moniker.[1]

On June 10, 2010, it was announced that four IHL teams made the move to the CHL, the Fort Wayne Komets, Bloomington PrairieThunder, Dayton Gems and the Quad City Mallards.[2] It was later announced that the Evansville IceMen would also participate in the league.[3] This is after team ownership in Evansville, Indiana purchased the former IHL Muskegon Lumberjacks franchise.
