The Houston Aeros mission is striving for excellence to insure all fans great pride, entertainment and community in being a part of our organization.
The Houston Aeros are in celebrating their 15th anniversary season of professional hockey – seventh in the American Hockey League. They have won two hockey titles – the International League’s Turner Cup in 1999 and the AHL’s Calder Cup in 2003. The Aeros have been to the post-season in all but one of their 13 previous seasons.
Houston is a city rich in hockey history. Such legends as Gordie Howe, Mark Howe, Marty Howe, Mark Messier and Jacques Lemaire have all spent time in Houston playing for teams such as the WHA Aeros, USHL Skippers/Huskies and the CPHL/CHL Apollos.
The Aeros play at the state-of-the-art Toyota Center in downtown Houston. The Toyota Center is the home to the NBA’s Houston Rockets and the WNBA’s Houston Comets.
The Houston Aeros entered into a new era prior to the 2003-04 season, when they were bought by the National Hockey League’s Minnesota Wild. The teams have been affiliated since the Aeros’ entrance into the AHL in the 2001-02 season.
