After calling the Orleans Arena home since the team's inception in 2003, the Las Vegas Wranglers are scrambling to secure a new venue for next season.
"The solution is not going to be simple," said Wranglers president Billy Johnson. "The timing of this has every possible place booked up."
In a meeting with Boyd Gaming, owners of the Orleans Arena, on Dec. 6, Johnson was told the team's lease with the arena would not be extended past the 2013-14 season.
"In that meeting, we were told it was 100-percent sure we would not be back," said Johnson.
Johnson asked for a one-year extension on the team's lease for time to search for a new sheet of ice.
"We were told that's not going to happen," said Johnson.
