Whereas, the South Carolina Sharks will begin playing later this year as a franchise in the East Coast Hockey League, which will consist of a total of seventeen teams; and
Whereas, the establishment of the Sharks' franchise marks the first time in history that a professional hockey team has been based in South Carolina; and

Whereas, the team president and majority owner, Joe Scanlon, has expressed a desire to spread the development of hockey across South Carolina through the future construction of hockey rinks in conjunction with municipalities. Now, therefore,
