The Kansas City Mavericks are an ice hockey team in the ECHL. Founded in 2009 as the Missouri Mavericks, the team plays in Independence, Missouri, a satellite city of Kansas City, Missouri, at the Silverstein Eye Centers Arena.
On April 16, 2009, the Central Hockey League announced an expansion team for Independence, to begin play in the 2009-10 season. The new organization teamed up with local newspaper The Examiner to hold a name-the-team contest until May 11. The Missouri Mavericks' name, logo, and colors were unveiled on June 24. On May 29, 2009, it was reported that Scott Hillman would be the Mavericks' first head coach, resigning from his same position with the Southern Professional Hockey League's Knoxville Ice Bears to do so. In his time with the Ice Bears, Hillman led them to two consecutive SPHL President's Cup championships and Coffey Trophies (awarded for the most regular-season points). On November 13, 2009, the team played their home opener before a crowd of 5,760 people at the Independence Events Center.
On September 17, 2011, the Mavericks announced an affiliation agreement with the Chicago Wolves of the American Hockey League for the 2011-12 season. This agreement would be renewed in one-year contracts until 2015.
On May 24, 2012, the Mavericks extended head coach Scott Hillman's contract for two additional seasons through the 2013-14 season. On July 31, 2012, the Mavericks announced an agreement with Entercom to have all 66 games for the 2012-13 season broadcast on the radio on 1660 KUDL.
On May 21, 2014, head coach Scott Hillman announced his resignation from the Mavericks because he is "...pursuing other hockey opportunities and wants to move to a community where he and wife Dalyn's sons can compete at the highest level." On May 27, 2014, Hillman was named as the first head coach for the expansion Indy Fuel of the ECHL. In June, the Mavericks hired Richard Matvichuk as the organization's new coach.
On October 7, 2014, soon before the 2014-15 Central Hockey League season was set to begin, it was announced that the Central Hockey League ceased operations and the Mavericks, along with the Allen Americans, Brampton Beast, Quad City Mallards, Rapid City Rush, Tulsa Oilers and Wichita Thunder, were all approved the expansion membership application into the ECHL for the 2014-15 season.
On June 11, 2015, the Mavericks announced they had signed a two-year affiliation deal with the New York Islanders. The Mavericks then served as the Islanders' secondary minor league affiliate, behind the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the American Hockey League.
On June 2, 2016, head coach Richard Matvichuk resigned after leading the Mavericks for two seasons, a regular season championship, and named ECHL coach of the year in 2015-16. He left the organization to become the head coach of the Western Hockey League's Prince George Cougars. He was replaced by former Mavericks player and assistant coach, John-Scott Dickson. Also, beginning with the 2016-17 season, the Mavericks and St. Louis Blues entered into a working agreement for cross-promoting hockey in Missouri and Kansas. However, the Islanders/Tigers organization still remained the Mavericks affiliate for player development.
On March 11, 2017, the Missouri Mavericks announced the team would be renamed as the Kansas City Mavericks beginning with the 2017-18 season. Also prior to the 2017-18 season, their affiliation with the Islanders ended when that organization affiliated with the expansion Worcester Railers. On June 8, 2017, Kansas City affiliated with the Calgary Flames (NHL) and the Stockton Heat (AHL).
