Federal Hockey League is back in Danbury with the Hat Tricks — and if you haven't been down to the Danbury Ice Arena yet this season, you're missing out. This team bursts into its first season with a logo of a scrappy rabbit with a chipped tooth, a name that alludes to both winning moves and Danbury's proud history and players determined to build on the excitement.

Instead of going on and on about why you'll have a great night at a local hockey game, whether you go with your buddies, a date or the family, we picked 12 photos that perfectly illustrate what you're getting into:

1) The passion. From that look of intense concentration to the skating technique that sends players flying across the arena, you'll watch athletes who truly love the game and are committed to bringing home wins.

2) The fights. Hockey is a physical game, and you're likely to get a glimpse of one or two hot moments on the ice (or as you see in that one photo, not just on the ice.)

3) Player celebrations. When you do it well, there's no reason to skip a brief celebration, and the Hat Tricks have plenty of reasons to celebrate.

4) The best fans. From loud cheers to the excitement of getting player autographs, you can't be the Hat Tricks' fans. They are loud, and they are loyal!
