Pro Hockey News traveled with Ice Flyer owner Tim Kerr last weeks he worked on his leases in Pensacola and Biloxi:
Normally, a trip to the Gulf Coast in July is filled with sun, sand, water and fun. When you own two minor league hockey teams in the region, however, summer visits are not always for entertainment. That was the case last week when Tim Kerr, chairman of the SPHL Board of Governors and owner of the Pensacola Ice Flyers and the Mississippi Surge, headed south to deal with business in both cities. The resulting decisions that came about were met with cheers in one (Pensacola) and jeers in the other (Biloxi).
