History of ASU Hockey

Hockey began as a sport at Arizona State in the early 80’s with ASU students gathering at Tower Ice Plaza in Central Phoenix to play pick up hockey amongst each other.  As collegiate club hockey evolved throughout the country, so did hockey at Arizona State.  By the late 80’s ASU was fielding a full-fledged Ice Hockey Team competing in Division II of the ACHA.  In 1993, General Manager Mike Hoffarth led the program to achieving ACHA Division I status propelling the Sun Devil Hockey Program into the national spotlight by qualifying for the ACHA Divsion I National Tournament just two years later in the 1995-96 season.  Then Head Coach, Gene Hammett would lead the program to three straight National Tournament appearances from 1995-1998.  ASU has qualified for 10 ACHA Divsion I National Tournaments since competing at the Division I level in the American Collegiate Hockey Association, and developed 12 ACHA Division I All-Americans. In the 2013-2014 season the team won its first National Championship.
