The Pensacola Ice Flyers are a professional ice hockey team of the Southern Professional Hockey League. The team played their first season in 2009–10. Home games are played at the Pensacola Bay Center, previously home to the ECHL's Pensacola Ice Pilots from 1996 until their folding in 2008.

The "Ice Flyers" name has a double meaning – it is both a tribute to Pensacola's heritage in naval aviation (Naval Air Station Pensacola is home to the legendary Blue Angels and the National Museum of Naval Aviation) and an homage to original owner Tim Kerr, who previously played eleven seasons with the National Hockey League's Philadelphia Flyers.

On April 14, 2013, the Ice Flyers beat the Huntsville Havoc 2–0 in Game 3 of the President's Cup Finals to win the franchise's first-ever President's Cup.[1] The win also solidified the City of Pensacola's first ever professional sports championship.
