DANBURY, Conn. -- Say goodbye to the Whalers. Officials at the Danbury Arena have notified the minor league hockey team that it has until April 17 to clear out of the facility, according to newstimes.com.

Officials from the arena notified the team in a letter that it will not seek a second five-year lease because the team paid invoices for ice time and rent late, failed to deliver game and practice schedules on time and allowed fans to bring outside food and beverages into the arena, the newstimes.com reported.
