Cincinnati Mighty Ducks

The Cincinnati Mighty Ducks were an ice hockey team in the American Hockey League. They played in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA, at the Cincinnati Gardens.

History

The Cincinnati Mighty Ducks were granted a voluntary suspension for the 2005–06 season due to the lack of an NHL affiliate after previous affiliates Detroit Red Wings and the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim signed new agreements with the Grand Rapids Griffins and the Portland Pirates, respectively. In October 2005 the team was renamed the Cincinnati RailRaiders. They were seeking an affiliation agreement for a return in 2006–07, but failed to reach a goal of 2,000 season tickets sold to become re-active.

On October 3, 2006, it was reported that a Windsor, Ontario, based company been granted conditional approval to purchased and relocate the team , however that deal fell through On March 19, 2007, however, the AHL announced that the team had been purchased, and moved to Rockford, Illinois, to become the Rockford IceHogs (which was the name of a United Hockey League franchise).
