Niagara IceDogs TicketsThe Niagara IceDogs is a Minor League ice hockey team that competes in the Central Division of the Ontario Hockey League. The team traces its history to 1996 when it was founded in Mississauga, Ont. The initial years in Mississauga didn't bring major success, so the team relocated to the childhood home of the owners in the city of St. Catharines. Despite the absence of a major championship title, the team remains very successful in its division. Over the years, it has also provided talented players to the NHL. The list of NHL alumni includes famous players such as Alex Pietrangelo, Ryan Strome, Brendan Perlini and Philip Tomasino. The home jersey is black with red and the jersey for away games is white with red. Depending on the jersey colors, the team wears black or white CCM gloves and helmets.
