UHL action came to Glens Falls in 1999, when the American Hockey League's Adirondack Red Wings disbanded. In 2000, hockey returned to the area with the relocation of the Winston-Salem IceHawks from Winston-Salem, North Carolina to Glens Falls to become the Adirondack IceHawks. The team was renamed Adirondack Frostbite in 2004. In 2004, ESPN SportsCenter anchor Steve Levy and NHL analyst Barry Melrose became the team's owners and the team changed its name to the Frostbite.
The Frostbite suspended operations on June 12, 2006 after the team could not come to a lease agreement with the Glens Falls Civic Center. Professional hockey would not return to the Adirondack region until 2009, when the Adirondack Phantoms (formerly the Philadelphia Phantoms) of the AHL relocated to Glens Falls.
