San Antonio Rampage Schedule
Since 2000 when the San Antonio Spurs bought the Adirondack Red Wings and moved the
franchise to San Antonio to play in their home the AT&T Center, the San Antonio Rampage AHL hockey team has been a fixture
on the local sports scene. While hockey may not generally be the first thing that outsiders think of when they hear of San
Antonio, the Rampage has taken the city by storm in their near decade and a half of existence. AT&T Center is bursting
with energy during San Antonio Rampage home games, giving them perhaps the best home ice advantage in the entire AHL. Be sure
to get your hands on some San Antonio Rampage tickets and get in on all of the action!
On Saturday, January 18th another
AHL powerhouse, the Rochester Americans come to AT&T Center looking to take down the Rampage on their home ice. This is
never a task that is easy to accomplish as the Rampage have historically had an incredible home record due to their incredible
crowd support and home ice advantage. Saturday, March 1st sees another monstrous game take place at AT&T Center when in
state rivals the Texas Stars will be hitting the ice to square off against the Rampage. These are always some of the most
intense games of the season and you will not want to miss a second of the action. Be sure to check out all of the San Antonio
Rampage's home schedule right here on StubHub.
The San Antonio Rampage are the Florida Panther's
top affiliate, meaning that at any moment some of the team's biggest stars could be called up to play in the NHL. This also
means that some of the best young hockey talent in the country hits the ice for the Rampage and each and every player is looking
to put on a show both for the home crowd and in an attempt to impress any NHL scouts who might be in the arena. Coach Tom
Rowe will be looking to guide the San Antonio Rampage to a Calder Cup championship in 2014. He will be looking for help from
captain Greg Rallo as well as assistant captain Jed Ortmeyer to provide some firepower that will light up the scoreboard.
Of course, no hockey team can be successful without a solid defense and assistant captain Greg Zanon will be anchoring a stout
defense that should be able to help propel the San Antonio Rampage to the top of the standings.

league hockey and San Antonio Rampage fans are some of the most dedicated and vociferous fans in the entire AHL. On game day
at AT&T Center, the fans file in and take their seats when the cheering and chanting begins. As the clock winds down closer
and closer to the dropping of the puck the crowd works itself into a frenzy. Finally both teams are ready for face off and
the excitement really begins. Thunderous, bone rattling hits, incredible displays of speed and agility, powerful slapshots,
and tremendous saves set the arena on fire for the following three periods of world class minor league hockey. By the time

MacLean dominates the scoring records for the San Antonio Rampage as the all time leader in goals, assists, and points. However,
there is another MacLean, Don MacLean, who holds the record for goals scored in a season with 33. As for defensive records,
Josh Tordjman holds the record for most wins as a goalie as well as the record for most shutouts with nine. The Rampage were
originally set to be named the San Antonio Stampede, but had to change their name after another local team, a semi pro football
team, filed a grievance because they already had rights to the name San Antonio Stampede.
