Franchise history
1996–1998 Edmonton Ice
1998–present Kootenay Ice

The Kootenay Ice are a major junior ice hockey team based in Cranbrook, British Columbia, and competing in the Western Hockey League (WHL). The team plays its home games at Western Financial Place, also nicknamed the RecPlex.

History[edit]

The franchise was founded in 1996 as the Edmonton Ice, and moved to Cranbrook in 1998. The Ice won the Memorial Cup in 2002, and also participated in 2000 and 2011, after having won the WHL championship.

The move of the Ice to Cranbrook resulted in the folding of the local Junior A powerhouse Cranbrook Colts and possibly the entire troubled Rocky Mountain Junior Hockey League that the Colts were the top team in. All of the remaining five RMJHL franchises from the Kootenays dropped to the Junior B Kootenay International Junior Hockey League within years of the Ice coming to the region.
