The Abbotsford Heat are a professional ice hockey team that plays in the American Hockey League. The team is based in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada. The Heat began play during 2009–10 season, and are the affiliate of the National Hockey League's Calgary Flames. Home games are played in the 7,046 seat Abbotsford Entertainment & Sports Centre. They are the only AHL team in the Pacific Time Zone, and are two time zones from the nearest team in the league, as there also are no teams in the Mountain Time Zone.
The Flames moved their affiliate to the Fraser Valley after playing two seasons in Moline, Illinois as the Quad City Flames. The team's transfer was approved on April 28, 2009, and as a result, Abbotsford became the westernmost city in the AHL. The team closest to the Heat in distance, the Oklahoma City Barons, is 1,583 mi (2,548 km) away in Oklahoma City, and the Heat are the only AHL team west of the Central Time Zone or the Rocky Mountains. As such, to reduce travel costs, road teams play two consecutive road games in Abbotsford, and in some cases, the Heat play consecutive road games at the same arena.
The team hosted a "Name the Team" contest and on May 14, 2009, the Heat was announced as the team's new name.
Team Information 
The Heat's mascot is Hawkey, an anthropomorphic red-tailed hawk; a species that is native to the Fraser Valley. Hawkey can be seen at home games wearing jersey #00.
