Green Bay Gamblers

The Green Bay Gamblers are a Tier 1 junior ice hockey team in the East Division of the United States Hockey League. They play in Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA at the Resch Center.

History

Since their inception into the United States Hockey League in 1994 the Green Bay Gamblers have been one of the premiere junior “A” hockey franchises in all of North America. To their credit the Gamblers have won two junior “A” National Championships, two Anderson Cups, two Clark Cups, four USHL Eastern Division titles, and one USHL Northern Division title.

Team Accomplishments

20 players selected in the NHL Entry Draft

100 future, current, and former NCAA Division I players

19 alumni playing professional hockey

Along with the team championships, the Gamblers have also had a great deal of success in moving their players onto the next level. At the collegiate level, over 100 players who adorned the Gamblers logo have received collegiate scholarships. Professionally, the Gamblers are also a household name, as 20 of their players have been selected in the annual National Hockey League Entry Draft.

In 2002, no other junior hockey team in North America had more players selected in the NHL Entry Draft. In that draft Green Bay had six players selected, five of whom played together on the 2001-02 squad. The Gamblers duplicated their success at the draft in 2005, when six players were selected, including Blake Wheeler who was taken with the 5th overall pick by the Phoenix Coyotes.

Another entity that makes the Gamblers one of the premiere junior programs is their facility, the Resch Center. Arguably the best junior hockey facility in North America, the Resch Center opened its doors in 2002. The Resch Center seats 8,800 for hockey, and will be home to the 2006 NCAA Division I Ice Hockey West Regional.

With the team championships, players movement to the next level, and a grade “A” facility, the Green Bay Gamblers are a glowing example of why the USHL is the top Tier 1 hockey league in the United States.
