Stockton Heat TicketsThe Stockton Heat is a minor league hockey team that serves as a farm system for its NHL affiliate. Before the Heat’s arrival, the city of Stockton had been the home of the Thunder of the ECHL between 2005 and 2015. The franchise was highly successful, making the playoffs in eight of its 10 years. After the Calgary Flames purchased the franchise, it executed a switch with the Adirondack Flames of the AHL. The ownership group moved the Thunder to Glens Falls, N.Y., in exchange for the Adirondack Flames coming to Stockton. The franchise now named the Heat had previously won four Calder Cup championships in different cities — three times as the Maine Mariners and once as the Saint John Flames. After arriving in Stockton, the Heat joined the newly created Pacific Division with several other Californian teams. It reached the AHL playoffs in its second ever season.
