Aris Saloniki Ice Hockey Club is an ice hockey team in Thessaloniki, Greece. They play in the Greek Ice Hockey Championship. They were founded in 1985 and initially known as Thessaloniki Penguins.

HistoryEdit

The club was founded in 1985 as Thessaloniki Penguins. In 1989, they joined the Aris Thessaloniki sports club and became known as the Aris Thessaloniki Penguins. They managed to win the first 3 Greek Ice Hockey Championships held; the inaugural Greek championship in 1989, and also claimed the 1990 and 1991 Greek championships. They also participated in the 1991 IIHF European Cup. They finished in last place in Group A, losing 26-1 to Levski-Spartak Sofia, and 30-0 to HC Steaua Bucuresti. After a last-place finish in 1993, the club folded, as with most other ice hockey clubs, due to financial difficulties, and the championship was cancelled until 2000.

In 1997, the club was reformed as Thessaloniki Titans and in 2003, again, joined Aris as the Aris Thessaloniki Ice Hockey Club. Since then, they participated in 2010, finishing 2nd and in 2011 again winning the championship.[1]

Aris last participated in the Greek Championship during the 2012-13 season.
