Tallahassee Tiger Sharks

The Tallahassee Tiger Sharks spent seven seasons in the late 90s playing at the Tallahassee-Leon County Civic Center. The Tiger Sharks relocated from Huntsville, AL for the 1994-95 season.

The team found immediate success on the ice, winning over 36 games each of their first three seasons, making the playoffs all three times. In 1995-96, they won a team record 42 games and advanced to the third round of the playoffs before losing to eventual champion Charlotte. During these years, the team received solid fan support with over 6,000 per game attending. 

Unfortunately, the team wouldn't fair as well on the ice later on, missing the playoffs four times and going above 36 wins only once in their final four seasons. Attendance dipped as well and things got really weird when the team was docked $50,000 and 15 points in the standings for circumventing the league salary cap and making payments to NHL and AHL teams for players. That would all happen in the team's final season in Tallahassee, 2000-01. After that season, the team relocated to Georgia.
