Cornwall - Dec. 6, 2011 - Last week, there were rumours circulating the Seaway City that the Brampton Battalion might be on the move. Whenever an OHL team is rumoured to be leaving their current home, the cities of Cornwall and North Bay are inevitably suggested as possible destinations.

The Brampton Guardian is reporting today that the Battalion are staying put – at least for next season. According to the Guardian, Battalion team owner Scott Abbott confirmed on Sunday that the team will honour the final year of its 15-year lease at the Powerade Centre, but is unsure what will happen after that.

“I’m not going to break the lease,” said Abbott when asked about the 2012-2013 Ontario Hockey League season. “But beyond next season, there is no agreement in place.”

OHL discussion sites are also suggesting that the Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors might be looking at a move out of the GTA. The team is owned by Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk. Perhaps it would make sense to have both of his teams within an hours drive?

The Guardian has reported that OHL protocol stipulates that any team intending to move must notify the league by December 31st.

That being said, the clock is ticking on a possible return of the Cornwall Royals for next season.
