On April 16, 2009, the Central Hockey League announced an expansion team for Independence, to begin play in the 2009–10 season.[1]

The team teamed up with local newspaper The Examiner to hold a name-the-team contest until May 11. The Mavericks' name, logo, and colors were unveiled on June 24.[2]

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).[3][4]

On November 13, 2009, the team played their home opener before a crowd of 5,760 people at the Independence Events Center.[5]

On September 17, 2011, the Mavericks announced an affiliation agreement with the Chicago Wolves of the American Hockey League for the 2011-12 season.[6] This agreement was renewed on September 8, 2012, for the 2012-13 season.[7] It was announced on July 11, 2013 that this agreement was renewed again for the 2013-14 season.[8] On June 26, 2014, this agreement was renewed again for the 2014-15 season.[9]

On May 24, 2012, the Mavericks extended Head Coach Scott Hillman's contract for two additional seasons through the 2013-14 season.[10]

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.[11]
