BILOXI, Miss. – The Mississippi Sea Wolves announced the formation of the Sea Wolves Ice Girls, who will appear at community events and all home games.
The Sea Wolves are the ECHL affiliate of the Tampa Bay Lightning of the National Hockey League and the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League.
Serving as ambassadors for the team, the Ice Girls will also help to raise funds for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Memorial Hospital in Gulfport.
After being forced by Hurricane Katrina to wait two seasons, Mississippi will finally be able to celebrate its “Decade in the Den” on Oct. 27 when it hosts Reading. The Sea Wolves have sold the most season tickets in team history as fans eagerly anticipate their return to the ice at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum for the first time since Apr. 15, 2005.
Located in Biloxi, the Sea Wolves had a Voluntary Suspension each of the last two seasons under the ECHL’s hardship provisions after the arena and the team office housed within suffered extensive damage.
