LAS VEGAS, NV – In the midst of yet another solid season, the No. 5 Arizona Hockey team (21-3-3) are winners of the WCHL Title yet again!
If you may recall, the Wildcats had a heck of a year last year, finishing the season with a 24-7 record, winning their first WCHL Title, before losing to Liberty in the first round of the ACHA Tournament.

Well, coming into the 2019-20 season, expectations were high, especially as the Wildcats were coming off one of their best seasons, and returned a large contingency of their talent from the year before.
This year has been no different, as the Cats have been dominant on the ice!
Additionally, Arizona’s Anthony Ciurro has returned for another season for the Cats, being a solid piece at goalie for the Wildcats. Anthony currently has an average save percentage of 92.6, surrendering just an average of 2.04 goals per game.
Well, so far compiling a 21-3-3 record, the Arizona Wildcats have now officially secured their second-straight WCHL Title.
Coming into last night, Arizona was in line to win the title, but were needing a loss by Oklahoma to become the Champions. Despite losing to No. 16 UNLV 4-3 on the road, the Wildcats were still able to clinch to become back-to-back WCHL Conference Champs!
The win is certainly a great feat, as it is always a good thing to see our beloved Wildcats win! Even though there is still plenty of hockey left to be played!
Arizona will return to the ice tonight to take on UNLV to conclude their two game series, before having the next two weeks off to then conclude their regular season against ASU on February 28 and 29!
At Zona Zealots, we’re proud of our Cats and are excited to see them win the WCHL again and hope they can continue their strong play for 2019-20! As always, Bear Down, Arizona!
