History[edit | edit source]
Michigan Tech has had a storied history from its inception in 1919, producing three national championships. The program has played in five different home arenas including the Amphidrome, Calumet Colosseum, Dee Stadium, and the John MacInnes Student Ice Arena.
Recently, the team has attempted to undergo a renaissance under the leadership of former MTU athlete Jamie Russell. The team is attempting to gain attendance through the use of the newly developed “Experience Tech” fee, which appropriates 750 free hockey tickets for students.

Some of these songs include “The Engineer’s Song,” verses other than the first to “In Heaven There Is No Beer,” and “Blue Skirt Waltz” (stylized as “The Copper Country Anthem”). Student organizations associated with hockey fandom include the student fan section Mitch's Misfits, and DaWGs, the official group representing the Huskies Pep Band.
