BOISE, Idaho – Start up the Zamboni – hockey season has once again arrived in the Treasure Valley.
The Idaho Steelheads drop the puck Saturday night for their 12th season, the team’s sixth in the ECHL.
Idaho has a steady tradition of success during its tenure in the Double A league, capping the ’04 and ’07 seasons with a Kelly Cup championship. One common thread in each of the previous seasons — at least 40 wins.
