With professional minor league baseball set to begin in the spring of 2014 at Charles Pointe, it may be even better news for some that professional minor league hockey may also be on its way. During Monday’s Bridgeport City Council work session, an official with Genesis Partners, the group responsible for the development of Charles Pointe, confirmed that there is interest for that sport to come to the city.
Following a presentation by Genesis Partners Managing Member Jamie Corton to Council, Rob Stuart, the Director of Planning and Engineering said their group has been approached by an interested party to host a team in Bridgeport. The team would be housed in a $55 million-plus civic center that is potentially in the works.
“There is certainly interest,” said Stuart. “I’m not able to name the parties involved, but we have definitely been approached about a team coming to this location.”
The possibility of a new civic center that would house a major basketball arena, as well as the potential for ice hockey, was part of the items spelled out by Corton, Stuart and Executive Director of Development Mark S. Dellana during the 45-minute presentation.


Growing up around these parts I never thought I would even hear about "pro" or "semi-pro" talked about in these parts....this is pretty cool!

Wrong board. Hockey is not relevant to WVU and a baseball complex competes against a Morgantown short-season team and hurts WVU baseball.

Would be interesting to see Bridgeport make a power play to wrestle the WVSSAC baseball or basketball championships away from Charleston.

I'd definitely be attending some games if an ice hockey team came to Bridgeport.

Realignment? I've had my fill of it, thanks. I just like football.
