==History==
The team began play in the [[2004-05 Huntsville Havoc Season|2004-05]] season, following the defunct [[Huntsville Channel Cats]] (SEHL). The team was coached by former player and coach of the [Huntsville Channel Cats]] [[John Gibson]] from the 2004-05 season till after the 2007-08 season. The team has made the postseason in each of the first 3 seasons of its existence, losing a one-game playoff to the [[Jacksonville Barracudas]] in [[2005 SPHL Playoffs|2005]] and being defeated two games to none by the [[Florida Seals]] in the second round of playoffs in [[2006 SPHL Playoffs|2006]] after knocking off the defending champion [[Columbus Cottonmouths]] in three games in the opening round. In [[2007 SPHL Playoffs|2007]] The Havoc was swept out of the playoffs by the eventual champions The [[Fayetteville FireAntz]]. The Havoc failed to make the playoffs in [[2008 SPHL Playoffs|2008]] and on March 24, 2008 Coach Gibson's contract was not renewed. On April 28, 2008 owner [[Keith Jeffries]] announced that [[Eric Soltys]] had been hired as the team’s new Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations. In the [[2009 SPHL Playoffs]] the Havoc was again beaten, in the first round, by the eventual champions [[Knoxville Ice Bears]] in 5 games (5 game seares). On May 18, 2009 Keith Jeffries announced that Eric Soltys had been relieved of his duties due to philosophical differences. Jeffries announced on June 29, 2009 that [[Randy Murphy]], former coach of the [[New Mexico Scorpions]] of the [[Central Hockey League]] (CHL), would be the new Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations. The Havoc ended the 2009-10 Season in Second place. Going into the play offs as a number 2 seed they hosted the first two playoff rounds. They defeated the [[Pensacola Ice Flyers]] in the first round three games to one. Then swept the Knoxville Ice Bears in two games in the second round. The havoc went up against the first place seed in the championship round, the [[Mississippi Surge]], sweeping them in three games and winning their First SPHL Championship.
+
The team began play in the [[2004–05 Southern Professional Hockey League season|2004–05]] season, following the defunct [[Huntsville Channel Cats]] of the [[South East Hockey League]]. The team finished sixth out of eight teams in the regular season in 2004–05 and lost a one-game playoff to the [[Jacksonville Barracudas]]. In 2006, Huntsville finished fifth in the league and was defeated two games to none by the [[Florida Seals]] in the second round of playoffs after knocking off the defending league champion [[Columbus Cottonmouths]] in three games in the opening round. In 2007, Huntsville's fourth-place regular season finish was for naught as they were swept out of the playoffs by the eventual league champion [[Fayetteville FireAntz]].
  +
  +
In 2008, the Havoc finished last in the SPHL standings and were the only team left out of the league playoffs. Immediately following the conclusion of the season, the team announced it would not renew the contract of head coach John Gibson, who had led the Havoc through all four SPHL seasons, coached the [[South East Hockey League|SEHL]] Channel Cats to the league championship in 2004, and was an All-Star defenseman for the [[Central Hockey League|CHL]] version of the Channel Cats. Eric Soltys was named head coach of the team for the 2008–09 season with Paul Snell serving as his assistant. In the 2008-09 SPHL season the Havoc finished in fourth place. In the 2009 SPHL Playoffs the Havoc was beaten in the first round by the eventual SPHL champions (Knoxville Ice Bears) in 5 games (5 game series). With Randy Murphy taking over coaching duties in 2009–10, the Havoc finished season play in second place, earning a team-record 71 points. The Havoc entered the SPHL playoffs as the #2 seed. In round 1 Huntsville defeated the Pensacola Ice Flyers 2 games to 1. In round 2 the Havoc swept the Knoxville Ice Bears. The Havoc then went on to sweep the Mississippi Surge in the finals, winning their first SPHL President's Cup. In the [[2010–11 Southern Professional Hockey League season|2010–11 season]], the Havoc finished 3rd in the regular season and lost in the first round of the playoffs to Columbus.

The Huntsville Havoc are a professional ice hockey team in the Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL). They play their home games at the Von Braun Center in downtown Huntsville, Alabama.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

The team began play in the 2004–05 season, following the defunct Huntsville Channel Cats of the South East Hockey League. The team finished sixth out of eight teams in the regular season in 2004–05 and lost a one-game playoff to the Jacksonville Barracudas. In 2006, Huntsville finished fifth in the league and was defeated two games to none by the Florida Seals in the second round of playoffs after knocking off the defending league champion Columbus Cottonmouths in three games in the opening round. In 2007, Huntsville's fourth-place regular season finish was for naught as they were swept out of the playoffs by the eventual league champion Fayetteville FireAntz.

In 2008, the Havoc finished last in the SPHL standings and were the only team left out of the league playoffs. Immediately following the conclusion of the season, the team announced it would not renew the contract of head coach John Gibson, who had led the Havoc through all four SPHL seasons, coached the SEHL Channel Cats to the league championship in 2004, and was an All-Star defenseman for the CHL version of the Channel Cats. Eric Soltys was named head coach of the team for the 2008–09 season with Paul Snell serving as his assistant. In the 2008-09 SPHL season the Havoc finished in fourth place. In the 2009 SPHL Playoffs the Havoc was beaten in the first round by the eventual SPHL champions (Knoxville Ice Bears) in 5 games (5 game series). With Randy Murphy taking over coaching duties in 2009–10, the Havoc finished season play in second place, earning a team-record 71 points. The Havoc entered the SPHL playoffs as the #2 seed. In round 1 Huntsville defeated the Pensacola Ice Flyers 2 games to 1. In round 2 the Havoc swept the Knoxville Ice Bears. The Havoc then went on to sweep the Mississippi Surge in the finals, winning their first SPHL President's Cup. In the 2010–11 season, the Havoc finished 3rd in the regular season and lost in the first round of the playoffs to Columbus.
