History[edit | edit source]
The Federal Hockey League held a regular-season game at McMorran Arena on January 31, 2015 between the Danbury Whalers and the Danville Dashers. 1,709 fans saw the Dashers defeat the Whalers by a score of 4-1, leading the FHL to strongly consider Port Huron as a market and seek out ownership for a franchise there.
Exactly two months later, on April 2, it was announced that the FHL's newest franchise would be based in Port Huron, making it the tenth hockey team to call Port Huron and the McMorran Arena home and the FHL's first Michigan team. Barry Soskin of Arlington Heights, Illinois serves as the team's owner.
A name-the-team contest was held, with the Prowlers name, logo and colors being announced on June 5.
