About Connecticut Whale

The team was originally formed as the Providence Reds in Providence, Rhode Island in 1926. However in 1976 the team was renamed to Rhode Island Reds. Later in 1977, the franchise was acquired by Broome Dusters as the North American Hockey League folded. After the acquisition, the team was relocated to Binghamton and was renamed to Binghamton Dusters. Later in 1980, the team started to be known as the Binghamton Whalers. They played for almost a decade with that name until they finally became Binghamton Rangers.
Connecticut Whale is the only minor league franchise that is based in the city of Hartford. Before Connecticut Whale started its play here in the city of Hartford, Hartford Whalers was based in the city. But in1997, the team relocated to North Carolina and was renamed to Carolina Hurricanes. A year later after the departure of Hartford Whalers, Binghamton Rangers moved to the city to play as the Connecticut Whale and called XL Center their home field.
After Binghamton Rangers moved to Hartford, the franchise was named to be called Hartford Wolf Pack, but the name was dropped because the same theme was also being used to by the Mississippi Sea Wolves, honoring the seawolf class submarines. As the team started playing as the Wolf Pack, E.J. McGuire was named the first head coach of the team and under his leadership the team played its first game against Springfield Falcons and came out victorious. In the history of the franchise, PJ Stock scored the very first goal for the team. The team enjoyed a successful run after its move to Hartford and made it to the playoffs for twelve consecutive seasons. And so far the team has missed playoffs only once for all that time. In the year 2000, the team also defeated Rochester Americans in the finals of Calder Cup and went on to win the Calder Cup. It’s due to accomplishments like these that the team now attracts huge number of fans to Connecticut Whale AHL games.
The name of the franchise was changed to Connecticut Whale to honor the Hartford Whalers. This was done on September 20, 2010 after Howard Baldwin took charge of the team as its new head of the marketing in 2010. The team played its last game as the Wolf Pact on November 26, 2010 and the name of the team was officially changed the following day. The first game that the team played with the new name was against Sound Tigers, and Whale came out victorious with the finishing score of 3-2 that result after a shootout. Presently the Whale brings all the excitement of the sport back to its fans with their upcoming season. So if you’re a supporter, grab your Connecticut Whale tickets today.
