#cawlidgehockey in Arizona

1 of 4

Arizona has seen a hockey influx of sorts. You’ve probably read that USA hockey reported  a 17 percent rise in registered players in the state, including yours truly.

As you might have guessed, since I’m not exactly playing on a line with Max Domi, the Arizona Coyotes are only a small snippet of the growth of the game here in the Grand Canyon State. There are three college hockey programs here in Arizona; ASU fields three teams in the ACHA, while NAU fields two ACHA teams,  and the University of Arizona fields a Division I ACHA team.
