About the Team 

By: Sophia Etier, Stampede Sports
In 2011, General Manager Mark Lantz brought the Stampede (formerly the Tulsa Rampage) to Cheyenne and they have been a staple of Wyoming’s capital city ever since. This Tier II & III Junior hockey team has its foundation built on a professional team basis which includes many amenities to aid the skaters. Cheyenne has 13 official members of its medical staff including a team optometrist, sport psychologist and consultant, two massage therapists, chiropractor, dentist, and 7 doctors with Dr. Skip Ross as the team’s Medical Director. With every Stampede home game, the Cheyenne Ice and Events Center can expect at least 500-800 roaring loyal fans to pack the stands and cheer on the team to victory.

Every year, the Cheyenne Stampede organization participates in multiple community service events such as the Cancer Awareness and Military Appreciation weekends, a Teddy Bear Toss game, and the players’ participation as bell ringers during the holiday season to name only a few. Money raised during the Military Appreciation weekend goes towards F.E. Warren Air Force Base’s Airmen Support Center, their Youth Center, as well as the base’s Air Force Base Wives Club for scholarship money. The funds raised during the Cancer Awareness weekend are given to the Cheyenne Regional Cancer Center, and last season, the money was focused on being put towards the production of wigs for the cancer patients. During last season’s Teddy Bear Toss, over 750 teddy bears and stuffed animals were collected after the first goal against the Wichita. Following the collection of these toys, some of the bears were donated to places such as the Salvation Army, Cheyenne’s Safe House, and the Fire Department. To brighten the day of as many patients as possible in Cheyenne Regional, many Stampede skaters personally delivered the stuffed bears to multiple children in the hospital. When the holiday season comes around, you can find many players ringing bells for Christmas donations or helping in the set up process for Cheyenne’s annual Christmas parade hosted by The Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce.  It is very apparent that the Stampede players find great joy in serving their community, and as a result, they have gained a special place in the hearts of Cheyenne’s population.

Players have come from all around the globe to play with the Stampede (places such as Russia, Sweden, Canada, Slovakia, Czech Republic, and more) and the roster continues to grow and thrive season after season. One of the main objectives of the team, besides personal player growth, would be the advancement of skaters on to college hockey. At this point in time, the Stampede has advanced at least 14 players to schools in the NCAA and the ACHA. The Stampede players are heavily active in Cheyenne’s youth hockey scene and are a great influence to the Cheyenne Capitals youth team. On average, 2-3 Stampede players attend almost every youth practice and help with the coaching of these young hockey players. $25,000 in the form of season tickets are donated to the youth hockey team so that every player can get a chance to watch what the future has in store as skaters advance to the junior hockey level. So if you can, grab a ticket, take a seat, and experience some of the best junior hockey has to offer.  Just one question, Can You Hear the Rumble?
