Product Description


DB-522, 80B

Former home of the Corpus Christi IceRays (1997-2004)

The Corpus Christi IceRays were a minor-league ice hockey team based in Corpus Christi, Texas affiliated with the Central Hockey League. The "IceRays" moniker derives from the many different species of stingrays who inhabit the nearby Gulf of Mexico.

The team was established in 1997 and now play their home games at Corpus Christi's new American Bank Center (ABC). The team previously played at the Champion Toyota IceCenter at Memorial Coliseum, dubbed "The Igloo" by fans because temperatures in the Coliseum dictated a dress that included sweaters and jackets, even in Corpus Christi's mild winters. The team was coached by former NHL veteran Ken McRae from 2004 to 2008 and broadcasts feature the brilliant talents and vocal stylings of Josh Bogorad, formerly a small time radio celebrity in the Los Angeles area.The team's head coach was former NHL player Brent Hughes. The IceRays franchise folded at the conclusion of the 2010 CHL season to make way for the Jr. A IceRays of the North American Hockey League.
