Buccaneer games are built around the motto that “Everyone Must Have Fun” and it’s the mission of the team that all spectators leave with a smile on their face regardless of the outcome.

The Buccaneers feature an average of 3,000 fans per game and a season ticket list of over 800. Not to mention, exposure in the arena itself which sees foot traffic of 200,000 annually.
The Buccaneers are member of the United States Hockey League, a developmental league featuring players between the ages of 16-20. The USHL is the TOP amateur developmental league in the country with almost all of the players each season receiving scholarships to Division I universities.
