    Congratulations to the following Hounds players who have advanced from the Texas Affiliate Camp (TAC) to represent the Hounds and Texas at the Rocky Mountain District (RMD) Player Development Camps.  The RMD camps are highly selective week long camps designed to identify national team caliber players.  A select few from the RMD camps will move on the National Camps held later this summer.  The 2001 RMD boys camp as well as the 2000/01 RMD girls camp will be held in June in Colorado Springs.

    Squirt Hounds are City Champs!

    03/30/2015, 1:30pm CDT
    By Hounds Hockey

    In a thrilling 4-3 overtime victory over the Memorial City Dragons, the Squirt Hounds captured the 2014-15 Houston Met Championship Sunday evening at Bellerive Ice Center.  Finding themselves down a goal in the third, the Hounds rallied to tie the game at 3.  After a furious back and forth finish to the period, the teams headed to sudden victory overtime.  Both goalies shined in overtime as the teams traded multiple scoring chances.  During a wild scrum in front of the Dragons net late in OT, the Hounds were able to knock in the rebound for the championship.  This was the second overtime victory for the Hounds in as many nights as they defeated the Memorial City McCoy team 4-3 in the semifinals.  The Hounds finished the regular season in first place after compiling a 16-3 record.  It was an incredible finish to an incredible season for an incredible group of kids, coaches and parents.  Go Hounds!

    Hounds Midget Major takes 2nd in Denver

    By Hounds Hockey

    The Hounds Midget Major team were the runners-up at the 2015 Arvada Winterfest Tournament in Denver, CO.  With victories over Regis (6-0) and the Hyland Hills Jaguars (3-1), the Hounds finished the round-robin stage as the #2 seed from their division.  In the semifinals, a late goal with 1:21 remaining broke a 1-1 tie against the Kansas City Stars and sent the Hounds to the championship game.  The Hounds fell in the championship game but showed great heart, skill and teamwork in taking 2nd out of an 8-team field of high quality midget teams.

    Squirt Hounds Last Game at SCIS

    Squirt Hounds Last Game at SCIS

    Hounds Say Goodbye to Space City Ice

    It was a bittersweet moment when the scoreboard ticked down to zero on a 6-4 victory for the Hounds squirt team as the players, coaches and parents realized it would be the last Hounds game played at Space City Ice.  Only an hour earlier the Hounds mite team finished their final game with one last chant of "Who are we? Hounds!" before saluting the crowd at center ice.  

    While the only home the Hounds have ever known will be sold to a car dealership early in October, we all took one last day to remember all that Space City Ice has given us.  As the kids marched off to the lockerroom with big smiles on their faces, we realize that this is not the end... this pack of Hounds will play on together!  Go Hounds!
