The Edmonton
Edmonton
Ice were a junior ice hockey team based in Edmonton, Alberta
Alberta
that played two seasons in the Western Hockey League. Despite the long held belief that major junior hockey could not compete against the NHL, the WHL expanded to Calgary, Alberta
Alberta
in 1995, and to Edmonton
Edmonton
in 1996. While the Hitmen would eventually make peace with, and ultimately be purchased by the Calgary
Calgary
Flames, the Ice's history in Edmonton
Edmonton
was as rocky as it was short. The Edmonton
Edmonton
Oilers relegated the Ice to also-ran status in the city of Edmonton
Edmonton
and forced them to play in the substandard Northlands Agricom
Northlands Agricom
rather than the preferred Northlands Coliseum. After only two seasons in which the team lost games on the ice and a great deal of money off it, the team decamped for Cranbrook, British Columbia, where they became the Kootenay Ice. The Ice were the second Edmonton
Edmonton
team to play in the WHL, preceded by two incarnations of the Edmonton
Edmonton
Oil Kings from 1966–76 and 1977–78. After nine years absent of the Alberta
Alberta
capital, the WHL returned to Edmonton
Edmonton
again in 2007 with the third incarnation of the Edmonton
Edmonton
Oil Kings which are owned by, rather than opposed by, the Oilers. Season-by-season record[edit] Note: GP = Games played, W = Wins, L = Losses, T = Ties Pts = Points, GF = Goals for, GA = Goals against
