PORTLAND (NEWS CENTER) - The Portland Pirates venue, the Cumberland County Civic Center, is getting remodeled this summer as is the team itself with the departure of four regulars from last season.
Two of the teams leading scorers have signed elsewhere as captain Alexandre Bolduc took a two-year deal with the St. Louis Blues while fellow forward Chris Conner is headed to Pittsburgh.
Both had extended looks with the Coyotes this past season.
Bolduc set career marks for scoring with 24 goals and 27 assists.
Also, leaving the organization are a pair of Johnsons: goalie Chad and forward Nick, each signing with the Bruins.
The Coyotes did re-sign a couple of defensemen: Michael Stone and Chris Summers.
