The Greensboro Monarchs were a professional ice hockey team based in Greensboro, NC. The Monarchs joined the East Coast Hockey League as an expansion franchise prior to the start of the 1989-90 season and surrendered the franchise to the league when the Monarchs joined the AHL at the conclusion of the 1994-95 ECHL season.
The Monarchs played in the ECHL from 1989 until 1995, reaching the playoffs in every season. They won the Riley Cup in their inaugural season, beating the Winston-Salem Thunderbirds four games to one. Goalie Wade Flaherty would be named playoff MVP. The Monarchs would also reach the Riley Cup Finals in 1991 and 1995.
With some of the owners voting to enter the American Hockey League, the franchise was canceled by the ECHL. The Carolina Monarchs played in the AHL for the 1995-1996 season before their lease was revoked by the Greensboro Coliseum when the Hartford Whalers (NHL) moved temporarily to Greensboro and became the Carolina Hurricanes of the NHL. The Hurricanes have since settled into their new arena in their permanent home of Raleigh, North Carolina.
