#10: AHL Team Moves to Texas

The Colorado Avalanche have had a few American Hockey Leagues through the years, including the Albany River Rats, Lowell Lock Monsters and the Cornwall Aces. Colorado teamed up with the Hershey Bears for 10 years, before moving their affiliation to the Lake Erie Monsters in 2005.

At the conclusion of the 2014-15 season, the team announced that its new affiliation was with the San Antonio Rampage. Avalanche prospects such as Chris Bigras, Mason Geertsen and Duncan Siemens relocated to Texas.

San Antonio is a mite closer to Colorado than Lake Erie, which is just outside of Columbus.
