From Sport History Author of the Year Jeb Bohn.

Professional hockey has a history in North Carolina that stretches back more than 65 years.

It all started with a rink fire in 1956 that displaced the Eastern Hockey League’s Baltimore Clippers. In the decades since, nearly 30 teams have called the state home. Things weren’t always pretty, and the teams weren’t always profitable, but there was never a dull moment.

From the bright lights of Charlotte to the tiny mountain town of Spruce Pine (population 2,273), hockey found a home across the state. The teams, sometimes featuring former and future NHL players, have combined for 15 league championships and countless memories. Beyond that, they inspired a love of the game in generations of fans.

Perfect for fans of hockey and its history, A Storm In Carolina chronicles every professional team from North Carolina, past and present, as well as team leaders in several categories.
