Celebrating Hockey in the Commonwealth

(Updated March 25, 2005)

Bluegrass Hockey (BGH) celebrates hockey & the history of hockey in Kentucky.  While professional hockey in Kentucky has been centered in Lexington and Louisville, any related locations are eagerly sought.  Here you'll find info on Kentucky teams, lists of former players, articles, pictures, where they are now, links, etc.  As the site progresses there will be player-dedicated pages with articles, clippings, interviews & photos. 

Additionally, you can check the composite schedule for professional and college hockey games in and around KY.  It shows the entire season and all games on any given day during the current season.

Do you have additional pictures, stories, news about a former KY player, KY Hockey items? Email Bluegrass Hockey.

URGENT NOTE: I am seeking contact with anyone who worked as staff (management, ticket sellers, ushers, etc) in the Louisville Armory (now known as the Gardens) from 1948 through the 1970s.  Email Bluegrass Hockey with any leads/contacts.
