Grand Rapids Rockets

The Grand Rapids Rockets were an American ice hockey franchise in the International Hockey League from Grand Rapids, Michigan. The venue for the Rockets was the Stadium Arena.


The Grand Rapids Rockets were founded in 1949 as a franchise of the Eastern Amateur Hockey League. After only one year the team moved to the fully professional International Hockey League, where they equal three times stood from 1950 to 1953 in a row in the final of the Turner Cup, but in each case subject to the opponents. First, the Rockets failed twice at the Toledo Mercurys, before they had to give themselves the Cincinnati Mohawks defeated in the season 1952/53. In the following years the franchise was unable to repeat these successes and in 1956 to Huntington, West Virginia, resettled, where it subsequently took part under the name of Huntington Hornets game on operation of the IHL.
