The Denver Falcons were the first professional ice hockey team in Colorado. They were a member of the United States Hockey League. Playing their home games at the University of Denver Ice Arena, the team had a memorable season in Denver, starting with winning Colorado's first professional hockey game over the St. Paul Saints 3-1 at DU. After a season which endured the tragic car crash death of Johnny Holota which also injured Billy Warwick, the Falcons advanced to the playoffs. They were defeated by the favored Omaha Knights three games to two, ending the Falcons' only season.
