Ice Flyers Celebrate a Decade of Goals, Saves, and Championships

Ice Flyers Celebrate a Decade of Goals, Saves, and Championships

By Dave Dunwoody - WUWF NPR


Hockey returns to Pensacola this weekend, as the Ice Flyers begin their tenth season at the Bay Center, aka “The Hangar.”

Pensacola finished tied in second place with Macon for the most regular-season victories in the SPHL last season – 33 out of a 56-game schedule – but were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs. In 2018-19, in the words of The Who, it’s “meet the new boss….same as the old boss.”

“I’m very fortunate and honored to be back, and look forward to this season,” Aldoff told the media at the Bay Center. “The success we’ve had, the organization, the professionalism, the commitment, the fans, the city; everything’s been first-class the first day I got here five years ago.”

All roads have led back to Pensacola for Head Coach Rod Aldoff. After leading the Ice Flyers to the Southern Professional Hockey League championship in 2014 and 2016 — and serving as an interim head coach in 2017 — he says accepting the opportunity to return was a no-brainer, and he feels he they have a strong team.

“Our goaltending is strong, our defense are solid, and we can put 10 good forwards on the ice every night,” Aldoff says. “That’s the team I want to build, that’s the team we’ve had in the past and that’s the teams that are tough to play against.”
