Indianapolis Ice

The Indianapolis Ice was the name of an ice hockey team in Indianapolis, Indiana, that played in the International Hockey League from 1988 to 1999 and in the Central Hockey League from 1999 to 2004. Their original home arena was Market Square Arena. After Market Square Arena closed, a few home games were played at Fairgrounds Coliseum (known then as Pepsi Coliseum) at the Indiana State Fargrounds each season, with the majority played at the Conseco Fieldhouse in downtown. Their major rivals during the 1990s were the Fort Wayne Komets.
