New Haven professional hockey has a long and storied history that dates back to 1926, when the Eagles were an inaugural team in the Canadian-American Hockey League. Nine professional ice hockey teams have called New Haven home, first in the New Haven Arena and later in the New Haven Veterans Memorial Coliseum. Sadly, New Haven's long run in professional hockey ended after the 2001–2002 season. There were many talented players over the years, including Frank Beisler, Emile Francis, Don Perry, Ron Rohmer, John Brophy, Chico Resch, Tom Colley, Frank "Never" Beaton, Hubie McDonough, Peter Worrell, and Glenn Stewart. Hockey in New Haven is the story of the players, coaches, and teams that entertained generations of fans in the Elm City.
