SALISBURY — A professional single-A level hockey league has expressed interest in expanding into Salisbury.

Federal Hockey League Vice Commissioner Andrew “Sarge” Richards says the league, which is in its seventh year, is looking to broaden itself geographically and thinks Salisbury would be a good fit.

Wicomico County Parks and Recreation Director Steve Miller says the county is just beginning to examine the possibility of having a professional hockey team.

Richards says for a team to survive, each game would generally need to see 1,200 to 1,500 attendees at about $10 per ticket.
