Hockey in the Capital District chronicles professional hockey in the capital region of New York State: Albany, Schenectady, and Troy. A total of six professional teams have taken the ice in four different leagues, beginning in the 1952–1953 season with the Troy Uncle Sam's Trojans. The tradition continued with the Schenectady Chiefs (1981–1982), the Troy Slapshots (1986–1987), the Albany Choppers (1990–1991), the Troy-based Capital District Islanders (1990–1993), and the Albany River Rats (1993–present). The River Rats brought the area its fi rst championship by capturing the AHL's Calder Cup. Through historic images, this volume presents the rich hockey heritage of the Capital District.
