The Moncton Hawks lost their affiliation with Winnipeg Jets at the end of the '94 season when the Jets moved to Phoenix.
The local owners sold the dormant franchise (I can't remember to who) when it was announced that the QMJHL was coming to town in '95
But under various affiliations/franchises AHL was in Moncton from 1978 to 1994 winning 1 Calder Cup and reaching the finals in 1994.
Franchise is hard because at the time local ownership was big and affiliations were the name of the game.
But didn't the Moncton Alpines become the Nova Scotia Oilers then the Cape Breton Oilers?
Moncton became the Golden Flames
Gotta add a team I never see on a defunct list but a team I remember is the Cinncinnati Swords a Buffalo affiliate and the Cleveland Barons
