The Fury were established in 1992 after the original Muskegon Lumberjacks of the International Hockey League's previous incarnation relocated to Cleveland, Ohio. Hockey had been in Muskegon for 32 consecutive seasons to that point and Tony Lisman, Owner/President of the Fury, would not let that tradition end. Lisman kept his vow to keep hockey in Muskegon by establishing the Fury in the Colonial Hockey League, and has been very successful in doing so throughout the league's name changes.
The Fury lost to the Danbury Trashers in the 2005-2006 playoffs in their bid for a third consecutive Colonial Cup championship.
On August 30, 2006, Bruce Ramsay was named the Fury head coach for the 2006-2007 season, replacing Todd Nelson, who had accepted the assistant coaching position for the Chicago Wolves a few days earlier.Nelson is now serving as an assistant coach for the NHL Atlanta Thrashers, and Ramsay has been resigned for the Fury's upcoming 2008-2009 season.
On September 12, 2008, the team changed its name to the Muskegon Lumberjacks with new ownership of brothers Stacey and Jeff Patulskey and Tim Taylor.
NOTE: The league's name has changed over the years from the Colonial Hockey League (until 1997), United Hockey League (1997-2007), and the "new" International Hockey League (2007-present).
