3ICE Brings Three-On-Three Professional Ice Hockey to Orleans Arena on June 18 and August 20


3ICE, an all-new independent, three-on-three professional ice hockey league in North America, is bringing its inaugural season opener to Orleans Arena on Saturday, June 18 and its playoffs and championship game on Saturday, August 20.

3ICE is uniquely designed to give hockey fans the speed, skill and excitement they’ve grown to love since the three-on-three overtime concept was introduced in 2015. E.J. Johnston, a former IMG, Fox Sports and Getty Images executive, as well as the son of former professional player, coach and general manager Ed Johnston, founded the three-on-three professional hockey league.

The league consists of six teams, which will travel to tour stops and compete in a tournament where each game will consist of two, eight-minute halves using a running clock on a full-sized rink. Each team has seven players, including one goalie, and competes in a nine-week season that will feature six games each night. The bracket-style, single-elimination format will include three first-round games and two semifinal matchups, followed by a title game.

Game time is 3 p.m. on Saturday, June 18, and 1 p.m. on Saturday, August 20. Tickets for the June 18 events start at $26.61 plus tax and fees, and tickets for the August 20 events start at $32.11 plus tax and fees. Tickets can be purchased online at To learn more about 3ICE, visit
