The Colorado College Tigers are a Men's Division I team in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association. They were most recently sweaped in the playoffs against Michgan Tech despite beating them a week earlier.
History[edit | edit source]
Since blazing into a new era with the opening of the Colorado Springs World Arena in January 1998, Tiger Hockey has continued to solidify its position among the nation’s most elite Division I programs. With six league titles, 16 home-ice playoff berths and a dozen NCAA tournament bids tucked away since 1994, Colorado College keeps adding chapter after chapter to its history.
CC’s recent string of success, which includes last season’s appearance in the national quarterfinals preceded by trips to the “Frozen Four” in 1996, 1997 and 2005, speaks volumes for the modern-day version of a program that has spanned eight decades. Sure, when Scott Owens took over as head coach in 1999, he inherited a perennial powerhouse. But where does the tale really begin? How has little Colorado College, a private liberal arts and sciences college with an enrollment of less than 2,000 students, maintained such elite status in a sport filled with Division I giants? Two concepts are to be considered, tradition (Influencing college hockey's growth from infancy.) and commitment (Relying on vision, hard work and creativity to create a nation wide envy of their hockey program.)

New Arena[edit | edit source]
October 12, 2016 the school announced that they received an $8 million donation from alumnus Edward J. Robson who had played with the hockey team and graduated in 1954 that would help fund a $10 million project that would build a practice facility on the campus that would replace Honnen Ice Arena. The new facility will be called the Edward J Robson Arena. Ground breaking is scheduled to take place during the 2018-19 academic year. The facility will seat 900 and become home to the school's club teams, imtramurals, community hockey games and other student activities. The team will continue to play its games at Broadmoor World Arena. By the time of the ground breaking it was announced that the arena would seat at least 3,800 and will become the home of the team when it opens in the fall of 2021.
