Hockey season is getting in gear and you don't have to be in a major city to enjoy the fast-paced action on the ice. Stockton has its own pro hockey team, the Stockton Heat. It's part of the American Hockey League and affiliated with the Calgary Flames. The Heat comes to Stockton for the first time this year, taking over the ECHL's Thunder. This is a step up for Stockton's pro hockey game, as the AHL is only one step below the NHL. You'll be seeing former NHL players and stars of tomorrow take the ice against other Pacific region AHL teams in thrilling, lightning-fast face-offs in the Stockton Arena.
