Updated: Mustangs, LCLC Agree To Five-Year Deal

The general manager of the Lunenburg County Lifestyle Centre confirms the South Shore Mustangs will play out of the facility beginning next season. Kevin Benjamin says the team's board of directors negotiated a five-year deal to skate at the new Clearwater Seafood Arena. The deal was officially signed Wednesday. Meanwhile, the president of the Mustangs says he's excited to play out of the LCLC. Lionel Haughn says the two sides were back and forth for months trying to hammer out a deal. He says the timing is right to move on from the Memorial Arena.

Haughn says other arenas in the area approached the team, but he wanted to stay in Bridgewater. The Mustangs have played out of Bridgewater since 1985.
