L/A Nordiques moving into Colisee

Jim Mercier looks at the new Lewiston/Auburn Nordiques logo at center ice of the Androscoggin Bank Colisee in Lewiston on Friday. The junior hockey team from the North American 3 Hockey League will play their first season in Lewiston starting with their home opener on Sept. 29. The team of 16- to 20-year-olds has been practicing in Auburn and will move into the Colisee next week. Mercier, the Colisee assistant manager, said crews painted the ice Friday and a layer of ice less than an inch thick will be laid down over the lines and logos on Saturday. The arena will also be home ice for the Lewiston Blue Devils and the Scarborough Red Storm. “It should be a good season,” Mercier said. “It’s exciting for us.”
