San Antonio Rampage TicketsThe San Antonio Rampage is a minor league hockey team that serves as a development program for its NHL affiliate. Before the Rampage came into existence, the first hockey team to ever play in the city of San Antonio was the Iguanas of the Central Hockey League. The team was briefly replaced by the Dragons of the International Hockey League between 1996 and 1998. After the Dragons ceased operation, the city of San Antonio brought back the Iguanas for four more seasons. In 2002, the San Antonio Spurs ownership group bought the rights to the dormant Adirondack Red Wings franchise and created the Rampage. In its best regular season finish, the Rampage won the division title in 2015 with 98 points. Brett MacLean, who played for the team between 2008 and 2011, is the all-time leading scorer with 155 points, including 74 goals and 81 assists.
