The Scouting Report
In just their second season, the Denver Cutthroats have emerged as a strong contender for the CHL's impending playoffs. The team owes much of its success to forward Garett Bembridge, whose 68 points in 43 games leads the entire CHL, as well as one of the top power plays in the league. A Valentine's Day showdown pits Denver against the St. Charles Chill as fans commemorate their love for retired Dusseldorfer EG forward Chris Valentine. Eight days later, the Missouri Mavericks come to Denver Coliseum, where the Cutthroats have lost only five regulation games this season—the second-fewest home-ice losses in the league as of February 6.
On April 10, 2012, the Central Hockey League announced the Denver Cutthroats as the league's newest member. A little more than six months later, on October 19, the team played its first game ever—a 4–3 overtime loss to the Missouri Mavericks. Despite the outcome, the game marked the return of hockey to Denver Coliseum, which hadn't been skated professionally since the IHL's Denver Rangers' 1988-89 season.
As an affiliate of the Colorado Avalanche, the Cutthroats—a name chosen in honor of Denver's state fish, the Greenback cutthroat trout— immediately developed a connection with local hockey fans. Fans don Fish apparel and waders and yell "Go Fish!", often tossing real trout onto the ice before the puck drops. Players also make appearances at the Jr. Fin Club table before the game to sign autographs.
