HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF)- The Huntsville Havoc and the UAH Chargers have plenty in common on the ice. Both know how to win championships, both have passionate fan bases, and both appear to have bright futures.
"We have tons of hockey fans who come out and want to see the hockey and it's all about the hockey on the big nights, the big crowd is just people who just want to come out and have a good night," said Huntsville Havoc Owner Keith Jefferies.
In 2013, UAH will make a move to the Western Collegiate Hockey Association; a move that they hope will propel the program to a higher level.
"When we were trying to get into the WCHA, I kept saying it would be like opening the gates of heaven. It's going to happen with season ticket sales, contributions, scheduling, recruiting, and fan interest," said UAH Athletics Director Dr. E.J. Brophy.
Both teams have another key similarity - the place where both programs call home, the Von Braun Center.
