Inaugural Season (2008-2009)
The All American Hockey League was formed in 2008 as the All American Hockey Association when the Battle Creek Revolution and South Shore Shooters (later the Chi-Town Shooters) of the Mid-Atlantic Hockey League banded together with the Evansville IceMen and Motor City Gamblers (later the Detroit Dragons) of the Midwest Hockey League.
The Detroit Dragons folded mid-season, with the Chicago Blaze joining weeks later to fill the void. (The Blaze were originally going to be an expansion franchise for the 2009-10 season.)
On April 5, 2009, the Chi-Town Shooters became the first team to win the Champions Cup by defeating the Battle Creek Revolution in the Best-of-5 championship series.
On April 14, 2009, the AAHA Board of Directors announced a reorganization from a Association format to a League format. This resulted in the All American Hockey Association being renamed the All American Hockey League
• Second Season (2009-2010)
On August 10, 2009, the AAHL announced a merger with the still-unlaunched Midwest Hockey League, absorbing the MWHL's Madison Ice Muskies as well as key MWHL personnel. The merged leagues continued under the AAHL name.
During the season, the Madison Ice Muskies and Chicago Blaze ceased operations due to financial problems. Also, the expansion Detroit Hitmen moved west to Muskegon, Michigan mid-season, and were re-christened as the West Michigan Blizzard.
On April 15, 2010, the Evansville IceMen won the AAHL's Rod Davidson Cup (originally "Champions Cup" during the inaugural AAHA season) by beating the West Michigan Blizzard 4-games-to-1.
• Third Season (2010-2011)
In June 2010 the IceMen suspended operation. IceMen owner Ron Geary bought the Muskegon Lumberjacks of the International Hockey League, moved the team to Evansville, Indiana, and renamed them the Evansville IceMen.
In August 2010, it was announced that the Madison Ice Muskies would be reinstated in the AAHL. In August 2010, it was also announced that the Queen City Storm were approved for membership in the AAHL as a expansion team.
The Chi-Town Shooters left the league in August 2010 with plans to join a junior hockey league for the 2011-12 season. In August 2010, the AAHL granted a expansion team to Lapeer, Michigan. A contest decided that Lapeer's team would be named the Lapeer Loggers. On August 31, 2010, the Troy Bruins were officially announced as the sixth expansion team in 2010- 2011 All American Hockey League season. In September 2010, the West Michigan Blizzard relocated to Dyer, Indiana and was renamed the Indiana Blizzard
The All American Hockey League announces today that the league will suspend operations for the 2011-2012 season.
