A message from the Plymouth Whalers

Plymouth president, head coach and
general manager Mike Vellucci clears up any rumors.

Peter Karmanos Jr. has sponsored youth and junior hockey in Detroit for over 20 years. It is his passion and will continue to be his passion.

I'm excited about the upcoming 2005-06 season. While setting attendance records last season and with seven NHL first round picks in our history and two potential first round picks in Dan Collins and James Neal, fans like watching this young, exciting team. Clearly, the Whalers have made a strong statement in Plymouth and will continue to do so.

There are many rumors concerning the sale of the Compuware Sports Arena, the Plymouth Whalers and the Compuware Youth Hockey Program.

I can assure you the rumors are 100 percent false and inaccurate.

As an organization, we will continue the tradition of excellence that has been the hallmark of Plymouth Whalers hockey for the last 15 years.
