LAFAYETTE — The Ice Gators hockey team is back in action Thursday at Blackham Coliseum.

In the late 90s the team set attendance records for minor league hockey games.

Coach Ron Handy will be leading the gators and says he is excited to be back on the ice after four years.

The first game will be Thursday night at seven against the Mississippi Surge.

It will also be a black out at Blackham Coliseum. Players and coaches are encouraging everyone to dress in black.
