There is no doubt that the Gladiators are helping grow hockey again in the Atlanta area. The National Hockey League moved the Atlanta Thrashers to Winnipeg on June 21, 2011, after the Thrashers played 11 seasons in Atlanta. This was the second time the National Hockey League was in Atlanta. The Atlanta Flames were in the NHL from 1972 to 1980 before the franchise moved to Calgary.
