Alaska Nanooks Hockey TicketsThe Alaska Nanooks have one of the longest and most interesting histories in all of NCAA Division I hockey. Originally founded in 1925, the team played one season before becoming defunct until the mid-1930s. The Nanooks were a Division I team until 1972-73. Then, they moved down to Division II from 1973-74 until the 1984-85 season. Since then, the Nanooks have made it clear that they're in Division I to stay. The Nanooks' have one 20-plus win season since 2000. They made it to the NCAA tournament in the 2009-10 season. After joining the WCHA for the 2013-14 season, they've had two 18-plus-win seasons. Today's Alaska Nanooks team is led by an alumni Head Coach Erik Largen. Largen has made fan outreach and community involvement a big part of his experience with the Alaska Nanooks hockey team. Under his leadership, the Nanooks' squad has improved, adding at least one win every season since he took the helm. Get your tickets to see the Alaska Nanooks hockey team at StubHub.
