It was previously home to the Mississippi Sea Wolves (ECHL) ice hockey team. Due to damages to the arena by heavy flooding and winds, from Hurricane Katrina in August 2005, the Mississippi Sea Wolves cancelled their 2005-2006 and 2006-2007 seasons. Repairs were completed in 2007, and the Sea Wolves returned on the ice on October 27, 2007. On March 30, 2009, the Sea Wolves announced they had suspended operations once again.
However, the Coliseum will not be without ice hockey entirely, as the Mississippi Surge has announced its membership in the Southern Professional Hockey League and will play at the Coliseum for the 2009-10 season.
