The Abbotsford Heat where a professional ice hockey team based in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada. The Heat began play during 2009-10 season, and are the affiliate of the National Hockey League's Calgary Flames. Home games are played in the 7,018 seat Abbotsford Entertainment & Sports Centre.
The Flames moved their affiliate to the Fraser Valley after playing two seasons in Moline, Illinois as the Quad City Flames. The team's transfer was approved on April 28, 2009, and as a result, Abbotsford will be the westernmost city in the AHL. In addition, the Heat are more than 1,300 miles away from the next-closest AHL team, the Manitoba Moose.
The team hosted a "Name the Team" contest and on May 14, 2009, the Heat was announced as the team's new name.
On May 5, 2014 the AHL Board of Governors approved the relocation of the franchise to the Glens Falls Civic Center in Glens Falls, NY for the 2014-15 AHL season. The team will replace the relocated Adirondack Phantoms, who relocated to a new arena in Allentown, PA. This eased a problem that the league had in Abbotsford being over 1,000 miles from its nearest opponent.
