University of Arizona Hockey was first established in 1979 by Head Coach and General Manager Leo Golembiewski as a Divsion-1 non-varsity hockey team, and originally played under the name of the Arizona IceCats. With Coach Golembiewski's help, the Icecats were a founding member of the American Collegiate Hockey Association (ACHA, est. 1991)..
In their 32 seasons of play ending with the 2010-2011 season, the Arizona IceCats had an overall record of 634-217-23. They won a National Tournament (1985), appeared in eight Final Fours (’84, ’86, ’87, ’88, ’91, ’93, ’94, ’97) and ten Elite Eights.
Since the 1980-81 season, IceCat home games were played at the 6,800 seat Tucson Convention Center Arena, affectionately known as “The Madhouse on Main Street," where the IceCats were consistently one of the University's top draws. During their tenure, they also ranked near the top in attendance for all of College Hockey, both ACHA and NCAA. The Tucson Convention Center is a staple of University of Arizona Hockey.
IceCats games were also broadcast on ESPN radio and the worldwide web on FastHockey.com
