“Buffalo” Bill Cody loved the land in northwestern Wyoming so much that he brought his friends there to start a town.

More than 100 years later, Cody, Wyo., spans 9ƒ square miles and contains about 9,500 citizens.

It has a full-time hockey rink.

Sean Hogan ran the Junior A Yellowstone Quake in Cody. He also coached at Oakland University in Michigan, which had, by his estimation, 10 full hockey surfaces within a 5-mile radius.

When Hogan coached at Western Michigan before being hired to run the Arizona Wildcats club team last year, he was surrounded by at least six hockey rinks.

Today, one day before their season opener at NAU, Hogan’s Wildcats will drive to Chandler to practice before continuing on to Flagstaff.
