The city's minor league ice hockey team began as an expansion team in 2003, and the city has embraced it fervently. Games can be wacky - fan love promotions such as mullet night, when hats with fake mullets are handed out. Game season extends from October through April. Thanks to the late hours this city keeps, the team became the first and only one to hold a game at mignight. The annual Midnight Holiday Roundup, played in December, encourages employees in the gaming industry to catch some action after they punch out for the day.
