Arizona Hawks (junior hockey)
The Arizona Hawks were an Amateur Athletic Union-sanctioned Tier II junior ice hockey team based out of Peoria, Arizona. Their host facility was AZ Ice Peoria, which is located next to the Peoria Sports Complex that is the spring training home of the Seattle Mariners and San Diego Padres of Major League Baseball. The team was a member of the Western States Hockey League in the Western Division. The team joined the league as an expansion team to start in the 2009–10 season. The players, ages 16–20, carried amateur status under Junior A guidelines and hoped to earn a spot on higher levels of junior ice hockey in the United States and Canada, collegiate, and eventually professional teams.
