The Scouting Report
As the ECHL celebrates its 25th season, the relatively young IceMen continue to stake their rightful claim in the league's standings. After amassing 92 points last season, including 69 assists, selfless center Todd Robinson returns to lead the roster along with familiar IceMen Matt Gens and Josh Beaulieu. On December 1, the team looks to topple the elite Kalamazoo Wings, who fell to the Florida Everblades in last year's Eastern Conference finals.
It didn't take long for the first professional hockey team in Evansville to make their mark; in just their second year in the All American Hockey League, in 2010, the fledgling IceMen won the Davidson Cup in seven games. Though that first clan of IceMen has since gone extinct, the team soon resurrected as part of the ECHL, where they serve as the minor-league affiliate of both the Columbus Blue Jackets and the Saint Louis Blues. During games, fans fill the 9,400-seat Ford Center arena as the polar-bear mascot, Blizzard, entertains crowds and teaches children of the dangers of costume warming.
