Recent History


In 1994 the University of Nebraska Men’s Hockey non varsity team was reformed by students who drove to Omaha to practice. In 1996 the Ice Box opened in Lincoln and the team started using the Ice Box for practice and games. During the next few years there were no long term goals of the team until spring 2005 when several members of the team asked Larry Taylor to be the head coach of the University of Nebraska men’s hockey team. Larry accepted the position with the help of Linda Amsbaugh and the Recreation Department of the University of Nebraska. Under Larry, Linda, and the Recreation Department’s guidance the team joined the ACHA (American Collegiate Hockey Association) as a member of the M2 division. In the fall of 2005 the team had established a schedule with other M2 and M3 ACHA teams and began play. During that first ACHA season Mark Champion upon hearing of the team joined forces with Larry and Linda to form the present staff for team operations.

Because of the intense use of the Ice Box the team could not schedule home games at reasonable times. So for the 2006 season the team found a new home for games at the Sidner Ice Arena in Fremont, NE where they now play hone games. The team uses the Ice Box for practices. See below for details of the new Breslow Ice Center.
