The Corpus Christi IceRays are a minor-league ice hockey team based in Corpus Christi, Texas affiliated with the Central Hockey League. The "IceRays" moniker derives from the many different species of stingrays who inhabit the nearby Gulf of Mexico.
The team was established in 1997 and plays home games at Corpus Christi's new American Bank Center (ABC). The team previously played at the Champion Toyota IceCenter at Memorial Coliseum, dubbed "The Igloo" by fans because temperatures in the Coliseum dictated a dress that included sweaters and jackets, even in Corpus Christi's mild winters. The team was coached by former NHL veteran Ken McRae from 2004 to 2008 and broadcasts feature the brilliant talents and vocal stylings of Josh Bogorad, formerly a small time radio celebrity in the Los Angeles area. The team's current head coach is former NHL player Brent Hughes.
On June 25, 2008, the team announced their return to the former Corpus Christi IceRays name, with an updated logo.
2008 - 64 games played - 22 wins - 34 losses - 52 goals scored
