Franchise history
1981-82: Cape Cod Buccaneers

The Cape Cod Buccaneers were a professional ice hockey team based in South Yarmouth, Massachusetts, Massachusetts. They were an inaugural member of the Atlantic Coast Hockey League and were owned by World Wrestling Entertainment CEO Vince McMahon.


McMahon hired former New Haven Nighthawks right wing Jim Troy to coach[1] and be the general manager[2]. In their only season in the ACHL, they went 17-21-1.

On February 1, 1982[3], McMahon folded the team, leaving the league with four operational teams. The league went into an emergency meeting, and decided to hold the post-season immediately and based seeding on geography. Coincidentally, the first and four seeds were opponents, as were the second and third seeds.
