IceGators Keep Hockey Alive in the South

View All Sports

Hockey has a strong following in South Louisiana and fans across Acadiana regularly visit the LA Ice Arena to watch the local IceGators hockey team. The IceGators are members of the Southern Professional Hockey League and their season runs from October to March.

Hockey games are a popular family outing in Acadiana. Beyond the game, the IceGators make evenings fun for the entire family with music, light shows, crowd interaction and occasional theme nights such as Star Wars Night, Cammo Contests, The Teddy Bear Toss and more. After select home games, fans are invited for a post-game skate with their favorite players.

In addition to serving as the IceGators’ hockey venue, the LA Ice Arena offers hockey and skating activities to the public to help foster support for the IceGators and the sport. LA Ice offers adult hockey leagues, skating lessons, basic hockey skills classes, conditioning for hockey players and more.
