Sheffield Scimitars were a semi-professional English ice hockey team, formed originally in 1986 as an Under 21 side. They initially played at the small 500 capacity Sheffield Ice Sports Centre, and became a senior side in the 1990s, playing in the ENIHL. Since then the team moved to the iceSheffield complex, where they became successful in the ENIHL and made the step-up to the EPL in 2005–06. Their mascot is a male hockey player with a large smiling head named "Scimmy", shirt number 00. In July 2010, the team ceased operations, and was replaced by the Sheffield Steeldogs, who took over the Scimitars spot in the EPL.
