The New Haven Eagles were a professional ice hockey team that played in New Haven, Connecticut. The Eagles were one of five inaugural franchises in the Canadian American Hockey League, and a founding member of the American Hockey League.

HistoryEdit

The Eagles finished in first place during their inaugural season, with a record of 18–14–0, and also won the league championship in the playoffs. New Haven played in the Can-Am league from 1926 to 1936, when the league became part of the International-American Hockey League. The Eagles played in the new I-AHL from 1936 to 1940, when the league was renamed the American Hockey League. New Haven continued in the AHL until 1943. The team suspsended operations for two seasons during World War II. The Eagles were resurrected for the 1945–46 season.

From 1946 to 1950 the franchise was known as the New Haven Ramblers. The team was reverted to the Eagles name for the 1950–51 season. However, the team folded in the middle of the season after only 28 games with a record of 5–23–0.

Other New Haven TeamsEdit

Several other teams called New Haven their home. Three teams from the Eastern Hockey League include the New Haven Tomahawks (1951–52), New Haven Nutmegs (1952–53), and the New Haven Blades (1954 to 1972). Two subsequent franchises playing the AHL were based in New Haven; the New Haven Nighthawks (1972 to 1992), who were renamed the New Haven Senators (1992–93), Beast of New Haven (1997 to 1999), and most recently the New Haven Knights (2000–2002).
