The Tacoma Knights are an American Tier III Junior A ice hockey team, member of the Northern Pacific Hockey League (NPHL). Originally scheduled to begin in the 2014-15 season, the team is projected to play in the 2015-16 season. The Knights home games arena is Sprinker Recreation Center in Tacoma.
The Northern Pacific Hockey Leagues announced that there would be an expansion team in Tacoma, Washington in March 2014. Matt Harris was hired as the first head coach in August 2014.
The franchise was going to play its first year in the 2014-15 season. A lack of players and coaching change saw the team cease operations just before the start of the season.. The team was hoping to play in the 2015-16 season but as of mid-June 2015 this does not seem to be the case.
The city of Tacoma has struggled to maintain a hockey team in the past. Previous teams include the Tacoma Rockets, a Western Hockey League team who played from 1991-1995, and the Tacoma Sabercats, who played in the West Coast Hockey League from 1997-2002.
