    The Brampton Beast of the ECHL have folded, citing COVID-19 pandemic.

    The professional hockey team started in 2013 in the Central Hockey League, helping fill the void after the Ontario Hockey League’s Brampton Battalion moved to North Bay. When the CHL folded in 2014, Brampton and six other teams joined the ECHL.

    “We played seven years in Brampton. We had some momentum. I think we were improving both on and off the ice,” team president and GM Cary Kaplan said “And the global pandemic hit. People think of it for one year but it’s really impacted for us three seasons of hockey. It was too much for our team to overcome.”
