Huntington did. But I don't believe Charleston ever did.

It would be another waste of taxpayer's money.

I think a long time ago (40s or 50s), there was a team called the Charleston Comets. The skated in a rink set up in the old (long-gone) Middleburg Auditorium. You might want to contact Richard Andre for further historical info or State Archives. Maybe Bill Wintz out of St. Albans.

Charleston has a hard time supporting WVIAC sports and some previous professional sports, although the new ballpark is more of a social attraction, not like the old AAA Charleston Charlies.

That's all we need is a bunch of taxpayer's money wasted on a damned hockey team. Why don't you asses drive to Pittsburgh and cheer on the Penguins if you like hockey so damned much.

Why are you so jaded on hockey? Just because people like it here doesn't mean its wasted $$. I'm sure there is something you would prefer that is wasted $$.

I'd like to see tax money spent on fixing these dang potholes around here, instead of a lame ass minor league hockey team.

If you like hockey go check out the WV chaos at coonskin 7:30 this Saturday. I used to think that soccer sucked until I saw it in person. Man they have lots of fights and the crowd heckles the other team sometimes pretty bad and they serve beer. This is the best sports secret around especially when there's no WVU or Marshall football to cheer.

I believe Marshall is starting up a club team. Playing up in South Charleston for the most part.

Will drudge this out to say that it was the 1930s, and the building was called Ice Sports in Kanawha City--the team stayed afloat from regularly booking Huntington's team, and when Huntington's rink closed, both teams folded. Ice Sports, BTW, became Barlow's Skating Rink after WWII...
