The Watertown Privateers are a minor professional hockey team in the Federal Hockey League based in Watertown, New York. After previously playing home games at the Bonnie Castle Recreation Center in Alexandria Bay, the Privateers moved to Watertown for the 2012-2013 season, playing home games at the Watertown Municipal Arena at the Alex Duffy Fairgrounds.
On March 1, 2013, Privateers owner and president Nicole Kirnan served as the team’s coach for the first time, and is believed to be the first female to coach a professional hockey team.
New Arena, New Team
For 2013-14, the Privateers revamped their identity with new jerseys, modeled after the Chicago Blackhawks 1991-92 heritage jersey, with a fresh new logo. Brad Zangs was brought in as new head coach. The team is continued to be broadcast by Chris Ericksen at home games at Watertown Municipal Arena and the team uses the Minnesota Wild goal horn and song.
Watertown's FHL team is expected to return for the 2014-15 with new ownership, after the previous owners decided not to continue. The new owners have not yet indicated whether they will keep the Privateers name.
