Team history[edit | edit source]
The franchise began as an expansion team to the NAHL in 2005. The team played in the town of Owatonna, Minnesota as the Southern Minnnesota Express. After the 2007-2008 season it was announced that the Express would relocated to the Metro Detroit area, where they would be called the Motor City Machine. The Owatonna, Minnesota market was granted a new franchise with a similar name, the Owatonna Express.
On June 26, 2009, the team announced it was changing its nickname to the Metal Jackets, and removing the triangle and text from the logo. 
On May 7, 2011 it was announced the team was moving to Jamestown New, York to become the Jamestown Ironmen, named after record setting Jamestown Jet Alumnist, Johnathan "The Ironman" Andhor. The city's current junior-A hockey team, the Jamestown Jets, is filing a lawsuit over the move, alleging a conspiracy to remove the Jets in favor of the Ironmen.
