Grand Rapids Bearcats logo.gif

The Grand Rapids Bearcats were a team that played in the North American Hockey League from 1998 to 1999. The team was based out of the Delta Plex Arena. The team relocated from the Ostego County Sportsplex in Gaylord, Michigan where they were known as the Gaylord Grizzlies and assumed the Bearcats identity. The team would be renamed during the 1999-2000 season to the Grand Rapids Rockets when the operations of the team were taken over by the league.  The team would then move to Lansing, Michigan in 2000 where they became the Capital Centre Pride until the team folded in 2003.
