                                      PHOENIX FIREBIRDS

This site features four incredible years of Phoenix Firebirds hockey led by Head Coach Kenny Moffat in Tempe, Arizona. During these years the teams from the Desert (both regular season and spring) reached the USA Hockey National Championships at the Tier 1 level for the first time in Arizona history - in fact twice. The chart below illustrates the number of hockey and other sports' players who have since gone on to play at the highest levels of hockey - no wonder Phoenix has been called the new "hockey factory"
