The Flyers expressed regret with the decision in a press release, saying it was not one taken lightly.

"On behalf of the FSJ Senior Flyers Hockey Club, I offer my sincere apologies to all of our faithful fans, sponsors, volunteers and alumni who have stood by this storied team for over six decades," said Flyers President Paul van Nostrand.
