Niagara IceDogs and city of Port Colborne holding a news conference Monday

The Niagara IceDogs and the city of Port Colborne are set to make an announcement.

A media release was sent out by city officials saying an event will be held Monday May 13th at the Vale Centre.

The news conference will include Mayor Bill Steele, Bones the OHL team's mascot, and Director of Community Marketing & Group Sales for the Niagara IceDogs Nino Bourikas.

The team made a public statement yesterday squashing rumours that the team is for sale.

Owners Bill and Denise Burke say the IceDogs are not for sale, nor have they ever been sold.

They say anything else you read is 100% false.
