Army Inline Hockey

The Army Black Knights® are a collegiate inline hockey team based in West Point, New York. The Black Knights represent the United States Military Academy® and are a recognized club sport. Currently the Black Knights are governed by the National Collegiate Roller Hockey Association. The Black Knights compete in the Eastern Collegiate Roller Hockey Association (ECRHA) at the Division I level.

Franchise history

The Black Knights began play in the 2002-2003 season as members of the Eastern Collegiate Roller Hockey Association (ECRHA). Bryan Dougherty founded the club with the goal of competing in the NCRHA and extending the physical program at the military academy into the realm of roller hockey. The Black Knights have struggled to gain legitimacy as a club team at the academy, but in the 2006-2007 season fared well enough to travel to Key West for the Winterfest where they were the runner-up. While they have a team-best record of 7-15-1, and an overall record of 12-64-1, the Army Black Knights have continued to improve with every game and have demonstrated their potential with a 4-3 win over the DI regional runner-ups SUNY Buffalo in 2007. In their first season at the Division I level, the Black Knights skated to a 4-1 victory over Drexel, one of the top teams in DII, and lost a nail-bitter to DII champions Stony Brook. They also finished ahead of conference rivals Boston University and Northeastern at the end of the regular season.
