Franchise History Edit

The current Utah Grizzlies franchise started as the Virginia Lancers, one of the founding members of the East Coast Hockey League. The franchise was under seven different names in five different southeastern cities from 1988 to 2003 when the Lexington Men O' War franchise suspended operations after one season. After the AHL incarnation of the Grizzlies suspended operations, David Elmore and Donna Tuttle bought the rights to the dormant Lexington Men O' War franchise and moved the team to the E Center to replace the previous Grizzlies franchise.

The market was previously served by:

  • Utah Grizzlies of the IHL and AHL (1995–2005)
