The Troy Bruins were an International Hockey League team based in Troy, Ohio that played from 1951 to 1959 at the Hobart Arena. Notable players were Brian Kilrea and Larry King Kwong.

The team was started as the Miami Valley Bruins in 1950 when the Hobart Arena first opened. The Bruins were an independent, non-league team that played exhibition games in the 1950-51 season. At the end of the season, the Bruins entered the 1950-51 United States National Senior Championship, losing the final to the Toledo Mercurys.

Goaltender, Bill Tibbs, won the James Norris Memorial Trophy IHL for the least goals against during the 1955–1956 regular season.

For the 2008-2009 season, the ECHL's Dayton Bombers wore special Troy Bruins throwback jerseys while playing six games at Hobart Arena, before auctioning them off for charity.

On May, 21, 2009, it was announced that a new hockey team named the Troy Bruins would play at Hobart Arena for the upcoming 2009-2010 season as a Junior A member of the United Junior Hockey League.
