Celebrating Cleveland Hockey Heritage

Professional hockey in Cleveland dates all the way back to 1929, when the Cleveland Indians began competing in the International Hockey League (1929-1933).

Since then, C-Town has been home to the Falcons (IHL) (1934-1936), Barons (AHL) (1936-1973), Crusaders (WHA) (1972-1976), Barons (NHL) (1976-1978), Lumberjacks (IHL) (1992-2001), Barons (AHL) (2002-2006), and now the Monsters since 2007.

On Friday, December 16th, the Monsters will be celebrating this rich tradition with Cleveland Hockey Heritage Night!

Among the many highlights of the evening will be:

  • The team will be wearing throwback Cleveland Crusaders jerseys, featuring the colors and logo of the former team (as pictured here on Mike Brennan)
  • There will be select Crusaders merchandise available in the Team Shop at The Q
  • There will be a “Hockey Heritage Zone” on the concourse (near section 108) that will feature hockey memorabilia from the last 75 years; the Cleveland Hockey Booster Club will be in the area to tell stories about their collection and answer any questions for fans
  • There will be a “Hockey Jeopardy” game in section 109 that will feature trivia about Cleveland hockey that fans can win prizes for
  • The Following retired players and team personnel will be at the Hockey Heritage Zone to meet fans and sign autographs from 6:30-7:20 p.m.: Bill Needham, Wayne Muloin, Ian Cushenan, Dennis Giannini, Ron Ward and Phil Simon
  • The former Crusaders players will drop the puck and all of the retired players will also be recognized during the first time out of the first period
  • Throughout the game, there will be old Cleveland hockey footage, trivia and video of current and former players talking about Cleveland
  • The players' game-worn jerseys will be featured in a silent auction on the concourse (section 128); there will be select jerseys that will be auctioned off in a live auction immediately following the game
We hope to see you all on Friday as we celebrate Cleveland Hockey Heritage Night!
