Hatcher & Legwand Assume Ownership of the Sting
MARCH 5, 2015

 After obtaining the OHL Board of Governors’ approval on the Transfer of Ownership, Derian Hatcher and David Legwand are proudly the new Owners of the Sarnia Sting Hockey Club.

“David and I are excited to officially take over the ownership of the Sarnia Sting.  We would like to thank Rob and Larry Ciccarelli for allowing us this opportunity and feel they should be commended for bringing OHL hockey to this market 20 years ago.  We are very excited about the future of this organization and we’re looking forward to providing a first-class product for the people of Sarnia-Lambton.  We are looking forward to working with the current staff that is in place to carry on the ultimate goal of bringing a championship to this city.” – Derian Hatcher

In 1994, the Ciccarelli’s, along with the late Shawn Burr, purchased the Newmarket Royals and relocated the Franchise to the city of Sarnia to form the Sarnia Sting. On February 22, 2015 – Rob Ciccarelli announced that he and Larry Ciccarelli had entered into a purchase agreement with Derian Hatcher and David Legwand to transfer the ownership of the Ontario Hockey League franchise.

Sting President, Bill Abercrombie comments on the transition, “On behalf of the staff, the players and our faithful supporters, I’d like to thank Rob and Larry for their tremendous efforts over the past 20 years. It goes without saying, that myself, the Front Office staff and the Hockey Operations department are truly excited to be moving forward under the ownership of Derian and David.”
