St. John’s Sports & Entertainment (“SJSEL”) and Deacon Sports and Entertainment (“DSE”) have reached an agreement that’ll see the Newfoundland Growlers return to the Mary Brown’s Centre.

The new agreement between the two sides states:

  • Provisions for an autonomous operational committee comprising representatives from both SJSEL and DSE to support operational requirements and obligations under the lease agreement;
  • Operational stability for the remainder of the three-year lease agreement to support the Newfoundland Growlers’ continued access to the Mary Brown’s Centre for hockey operations;
  • Agreement to support a media blackout with respect to the workplace harassment investigation and arbitration as well as promotion of respectful social media commentary;
  • Continuation of the arbitration commenced by DSE against SJSEL.

While the investigation into workplace harassments accusations is still ongoing, the city says there were never any allegations of a physical or sexual nature and neither players nor coaches of the Newfoundland Growlers are involved in the allegations.
