The Corpus Christi IceRays are a Junior A ice hockey team playing in the North American Hockey League.

The franchise originally joined the NAHL as the Pittsburgh Forge from 2001 to 2003. They relocated to Toledo, Ohio and became the Toldeo IceDiggers from 2003 to 2005. They then became the Alpena IceDiggers, playing in the Northern Lights Arena located in Alpena, Michigan from 2005 to 2010.
