For 2020-21[edit | edit source]

  • In early April 2020, it was announced the Coulee Region Chill (NA3HL) would not play during the 2020–21 season due to the city's decision to no longer operate Green Island Ice Arena.[3]
  • On May 19, 2020 the NA3HL announced that the Coulee Region Chill would be relocated to the Arctic Edge Ice Arena in Edmond, Oklahoma. The team took the name Oklahoma City Blazers which was the name of several other professional and junior teams to play in the area. The team was purchased by the owner of the former WSHL franchise of the same name.[7][8]
