The Dubuque Fighting Saints joined the United States Hockey League (USHL) for the 1980–1981 season. They rejoined the USHL in 2010.

The Saints glory years lasted from 1980–1981 through to 1984–1985, when they played under the coaching supervision of Jack Barzee who left to become a central figure in the National Hockey League's Central Scouting Staff. During the first season, the Dubuque Fighting Saints 1980–1981 record was 52-11-2, a league record. In 1982–1983, the Saints went on to win their second national championship in three years.</ref>

The Saints (2010 - Present)[edit]

In 2010, after a new arena, the Mystique Community Ice Center, was constructed in the city, several investors stepped up and offered to bring Dubuque a USHL hockey team once again. There was a contest held to determine the team name, logos, and colors for the new team. The fans wanted to relive the glory days and picked the Fighting Saints to be their team name once again.

[edit]

The Fighting Saints team colors are red and white and a secondary color sliver. Their main logo is a Gothic style D with a sword piercing the D and a halo on the top.
