Black Bear Sports Group Buys Warminster Hockey Rink

by Steve Lubetkin,
Black Bear Sports Group has acquired the Revolution Ice Gardens, 1621 Mearns Rd., Warminster, PA. The arena houses two NHL-size ice sheets and is home to the Philadelphia Revolution Hockey Club, the Lady Patriots Hockey Club and various local high schools. BBSG was founded by Murry Gunty in 2015.
“The Revolution Ice Gardens is the hockey hub of North Philadelphia and Bucks County,” says Gunty. “Under the direction of Chris Kanaly, this rink has produced world-class hockey players like NHL draft pick Cayden Primeau. We are excited to help Chris grow the programs and in particular, to now be able to offer local youth players at the Revolution Ice Gardens a path to college hockey through our network of USHL, NAHL and EHL junior hockey teams.”

“The arena is the 11th ice rink (20 sheets of ice) purchased by BBSG along with its three junior hockey teams,” says Ryan Scott, vice president of BBSG. “Revolution is a great complement to our existing rinks in Pennsylvania and New Jersey and we look forward to expanding our operations into Eastern PA.”
“Black Bear Sports Group owns junior hockey teams in the nation’s top leagues scouted by the NCAA and NHL,” says Chris Kanaly, general manager of the Revolution Elite Youth Hockey Club. “The new affiliation between Revolution Youth Elite Hockey and Black Bear Sports Group creates a unique opportunity for our players to climb the ladder of development through junior hockey into college and pro that no other club in the city can offer.”
