Franchise history[edit]

Team logo when the franchise played as the Cincinnati Swords from 2013-2015.

The team was previously known as the Queen City Steam from 2007 to 2013.[1] In 2013 the Steam re-branded as the Cincinnati Swords after the merger of two youth hockey programs in the Cincinnati area. The Swords name is a homage to the former American Hockey League team of the same name.[2] On August 14, 2014, the NA3HL approved the sale of the Cincinnati Swords to the Miami Valley Hockey Association owned by Ryan and Jim Colville.[3]

On April 10, 2015, the Swords announced that it would be renamed and called the Cincinnati Thunder beginning with the 2015-16 season.[4]
