Major Rivals Alaska-Fairbanks

The Alaska-Anchoarge Seawolves are a Men's Division I team in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association.

1984-85 NCAA Division I Independent
1985-86 NCAA Division I Great West Hockey Conference
1993-94 NCAA Division I Western Collegiate Hockey Association (1st season)

An ongoing budget crisis in the state of Alaska has created the possibility of the state's two division I schools Alaska-Fairbanks Nanooks and Alaska-Anchorage Seawolves either having funding drasticly cut, the programs being merged into one, one program being eliminated, or both programs being eliminated for the 2017-18 season.  Both programs were spared from the chopping block in early November when it was announced that Alaska-Fairbanks would cut its cross country ski teams and that Alaska-Anchorage would cut its ski and indoor track programs.

On May 29, 2019 it was announced that for the 2019-20 season the team moved its home games from Sullivan Arena to the on campus Wells Fargo Sports Complex. The arena has been the teams practice facility.  The facility will have the seating expanded over the next few years.[1]

On August 19, 2020 it was announced that the men's ice hockey program would be cancelled effective the end of the 2020-21 playing season. Rumors of the program being cancelled have been going for several years as the state of Alaska has been hit with severe budget constraints prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.[2]
