The Puget Sound Tomahawks are a USA Hockey-sanctioned Tier III Junior A ice hockey team playing in the Pacific Division of the Northern Pacific Hockey League (NORPAC). The team plays its home games at Bremerton Ice Center in Bremerton, Washington USA.[1]

The franchise joined the NorPac in 2000 as the Puget Sound Kings, playing home games at the Puget Sound Hockey Center in Tacoma, Washington. In 2003, they moved to the new arena in nearby Bremerton and were renamed the Tomahawks. They continue to use Puget Sound Hockey Center as a practice facility.[2]

The NorPac was classified as "Junior B" until 2007, when the league and member teams were granted Tier III Jr A status by USA Hockey, the governing body for ice hockey in the United States.

Alumni

The Tomahawks have had a number of alumni move on to collegiate programs and higher levels of junior ice hockey in the United States and Canada.
