Overview


Hockey in Syracuse retraces the history of the eight professional teams that have taken the ice in Syracuse in six different leagues since 1930. Each team has its own colorful story, beginning with the Syracuse Stars of the International Hockey League. The “Twinklers” have the distinction of capturing the first Calder Cup ever awarded. Other teams included the Warriors (1951–1954), the Braves (1962–1963), the Blazers (1967–1977), the Eagles (1974–1975), the Firebirds (1979–1980), and the Hornets (1980–1981). The present-day Crunch brought hockey back in 1994 and have provided Syracuse fans with thrills on the ice ever since. Salt City teams have won four playoff championships and have set several all-time professional hockey records that still stand today. Hockey Hall of Famers from these teams include Keith “Bingo” Allen, Gord Drillon, Phil Esposito, Syd Howe, and Dave “Sweeney” Schriner. Syracuse truly has a rich hockey heritage.
