Franchise history

The Capital District Selects were a Junior A ice hockey team from Albany, New York playing in the Eastern Junior Hockey League. The team relocated to Norwalk, Connecticut and became the Connecticut Oilers in 2012


HistoryEdit

The franchise was initially founded as the Capital District Selects playing out of Troy, New York. After several seasons as an independent midget team, the CD Selects joined the Eastern Junior Hockey League (EJHL) in 1998 as a part-time member, joining full-time in 1999. The team was owned and coached by former RPI coach Jim Salfi. Since the 2002-2003 Season the Selects played in the Eastern Junior Hockey League's "South" Division, until the Boston Junior Shamrocks were sold and moved to Philadelphia causing the Selects to play in the Eastern Junior Hockey League's "North" Division. In 2012 the team was sold and relocated to Norwalk, Connecticut and renamed the Connecticut Oilers. During the summer of 2013 there was a strong effort to re-organize the hockey in north eastern United States resulting in the Oilers moving to the Atlantic Junior Hockey League. On June 6, 2013 the AJHL became the EHL.
