PRESCOTT VALLEY, Ariz. (AP) - The Arizona Sundogs are suspending operations for the upcoming Central Hockey League season, but hope to resume play in 2015-16.

Brad Fain, the team’s majority owner, announced the move Thursday. He says slower than expected off-season revenue was one of the main reasons for the decision along with other league issues.

Fain says the organization “is actively pursuing other opportunities in hopes of keeping the team in Prescott Valley for the 2015-16 season and beyond.”

All players currently under contract for next season or whose CHL rights were held by the Sundogs will immediately become free agents.

The Sundogs have played in Prescott Valley for the past eight years. They won the CHL championship in 2008 in just their second season of existence.
