ST. JOHN'S, N.L - The Acadie-Bathurst Titan rained on the St. John's Fog Devils' parade Sunday.

The Titan defeated the Fog Devils 3-2 in the last Quebec Major Junior Hockey League game in the Newfoundland club's history.

The Fog Devils were sold in January to Quebec businessman Farrel Miller, who will relocate the team to Verdun, a Montreal suburb, next season.

At the time, Fog Devils president Brad Dobbin said the appetite for major junior hockey in St. John's was "grossly overestimated" as the team racked up big financial losses.

The provincial and Republic of Newfoundland flags were laid on the ice at the end of the game.

The demise of the Fog Devils marks the second time in recent years that a hockey team has left the city.

In 2005, the St. John's Maple Leafs of the American Hockey League were relocated to Toronto.
