The Indianapolis Ice was the name of an ice hockey team in Indianapolis, Indiana, that played in the International Hockey League from 1988 to 1999 and in the Central Hockey League from 1999 to 2004. Their original home arena was Market Square Arena. After Market Square Arena was razed, a few home games were played at Bankers Life Fieldhouse (known then as Conseco Fieldhouse) downtown each year, with the majority played at the Pepsi Coliseum at the Indiana State Fairgrounds. Their major rivals during the 1990s were the Fort Wayne Komets.

This team would be replaced by a team in the United States Hockey League called the Indiana Ice following the 2003–04 season, while they relocated to Topeka, Kansas to become the Topeka Tarantulas.

The Ice won the 1990 Turner Cup and the 2000 Ray Miron Cup.
