Travel a Missouri Mavericks Hockey

INDEPENDENCE, MO (KCTV) -

Lamar Hunt Jr. is the new owner of the Missouri Mavericks, the minor-league hockey team based at the Independence Events Center.

Hunt is the president of Loretto Ventures LLC, which is the company that officially bought the Mavericks.

Lamar Hunt waxed about attending sporting evenings including minor-league hockey games with his late father, who founded the Kansas City Chiefs.

"I grew up in a sports-minded family. I grew up with a father who never saw a sporting event he didn't go to, " Hunt said.

The Mavericks were founded in 2009. The team this season moved from the Central Hockey League to the ECHL, which is a AA hockey league. Hunt's younger brother, Clark, is the CEO of the Chiefs.

Officials with the hockey league, the team and the city of Independence lauded Hunt's sports knowledge and dedication to the Kansas City area.

"It ensures our long-term future in Kansas City and we are excited to help him take the franchise to the next level, " said Mavericks general manager Brent Thiessen.

Hunt's goals are to raise the team's profile, seek affiliation with an NHL franchise and expand youth hockey programs in the Kansas City area.

Hunt said he wants to grow the sport of hockey in Kansas City, and have more figure skating events at the Independence arena. He talked about the great fans that the Mavericks have with many traveling to support the team.
