Although the Mississippi Surge is no longer a hockey operation, plans are in place to bring ice hockey back to the Coast.

This could be a reality as early as the start of the 2014-15 Southern Professional Hockey League (S.P.H.L.) season if they are able to secure investment money by mid-July. President and General Manager, Andy Makal, says that the new team will be a completely different venture than the Surge.

Makal says, “Well, I think we're going to start with a whole new organization. Obviously we want to move with a re-brand and try to be something completely new. When they suspended operations, that organization was no longer, so we're basically just starting over, something new, something fresh, something exciting, and just give fans something different to cheer for.”

If Makal and his team are not able to secure funds to play in the S.P.H.L. this season, they have a contingency plan in place so that they could play in the fall of 2015.
