HistoryEdit

Hockey in Norwalk dates back to the Norwalk Home Oilers hockey team which was created in the 1930's.  The team was owned by Norwalk Home Oil Company owner W.B. Hopkins and played out of the Crystal Rink in Norwalk.  Many of the teams were filled with local players.  The team shut down operations when World War II started but returned to the ice in 1947.
