Professional ice hockey is hot in Florida. Not only are there two NHL teams, there there are also farm teams, including the minor league affiliate of the Carolina Hurricanes, the Florida Everblades. The team plays at TECO Arena in Estero and is part of the 26-team ECHL (East Coast Hockey League). The season lasts from October through April. Most home games start at 7:30p, but check the schedule to be sure. The arena also features a pro shop, birthday rooms, a video arcade, concessions and public skating.
