Affiliates to the Dallas Stars, the Idaho Steelheads have 2011 title aspirations. To increase their chances they have mastered skating while head-balancing their 2004 and 2007 ECHL League Championship cups. Come watch new head coach Hardy Sauter and the Steelheads defend their titles while skating circles around the rink and the competition.
Hoisting championship trophies and high-stakes competition comes second nature to the Idaho Steelheads. Since joining the ECHL in 2003, the team has qualified for the playoffs every season, and in 2004 and 2007, the team conquered all opponents to take the ECHL Kelly Cup, the league's most prestigious cup other than that coffee mug Wayne Gretzky once touched. An affiliate of the NHL Dallas Stars, their players take to the ice at CenturyLink Arena, where fans routinely fill sections to cheer their team on against Western Conference foes.
