The Northern Pacific Hockey Leagues announced that there would be an expansion team in Tacoma, Washington in March 2014.[1] 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.[2]. 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.
