Vinton, Virginia was home to the Virginia Lancers of the ECHL from 1988-1990. At this time, the name was changed to the Roanoke Valley Rebels (1990-1992) and then the Rampage (1992-1993), but the franchise remained in the same location throughout. After the 1992-1993 season, the franchise was moved to Alabama and became the Huntsville Blast.

The Lancers' coach from 1988-1990, John Tortorella, now head coach of the New York Rangers, won the Stanley Cup in 2003-04 with the Tampa Bay Lightning.
