The new owners of the Saskatchewan Rush say they are not looking to make any substantial changes to the organization.
The National Lacrosse League said the team was acquired by the Priestner Sports Corporation from owner Bruce Urban.
Priestner Sports Corporation are the owners of the Western Hockey League’s Saskatoon Blades.
“Since relocating to Saskatoon in 2016, the Rush have, inarguably, been the most successful franchise in the league,” said Colin Priestner, who will assume the duties of governor for the Rush. He will continue as president and general manager of the Blades.
“This team has won two championships in four full seasons in Saskatoon, which is a testament to the character and quality of the players, the staff, and the culture that Bruce put together here.”
