The New York Bluefins were a professional hockey team in the Federal Hockey League based in New York.

They played the 2010-11 season as the Broome County Barons. As a result of a market study conducted by the Federal Hockey League during the end of the 2010-2011 regular season the FHL moved the franchise to Cape Cod. MA.

The Barons franchise was owned by the Commissioner of the FHL, Don Kirnan. On March 3, 2011 the Federal Hockey League franchise rights for Cape Cod were transferred to the Cape Cod Hockey Development Foundation.

For the 2012-13 season, home games were scheduled to be played at a number of rinks throughout the Cape including ice arenas in Hyannis, Orleans, Falmouth, Bourne, and Martha's Vineyard. The team stopped playing home games in late November 2012.

On December 16, 2012, it was announced that the Bluefins were immediately moving to central New York and taking on the name "New York Bluefins" and attempted to play limited home games in Cortland, New York at the McDonald Sports Complex.
