The San Diego Gulls will be a team in the American Hockey League (AHL) which will begin play for the 2015-16 season. Based in San Diego, California and affiliated with the National Hockey League's Anaheim Ducks, the Gulls will play their home games at the Valley View Casino Center. The team is the fifth San Diego hockey team to use the Gulls nickname (replacing the current junior level WSHL San Diego Gulls who will change their name to the Sabers starting in the 2015-16 season). It is a relocation of the former Norfolk Admirals AHL franchise, joining several other AHL franchises to form a new AHL Pacific Division in California.
On January 29, 2015, the Anaheim Ducks announced that they had purchased their AHL affiliate, the Norfolk Admirals, and would be moving it to San Diego as one of five charter member's of the AHL's new Pacific Division. The team will play at the Valley View Casino Center, becoming the sixth hockey team to play there, following the original San Diego Gulls of the WHL (1966–74), the San Diego Mariners of the WHA (1974–77), the San Diego Hawks/Mariners of the Pacific Hockey League (1977–79), the second San Diego Gulls of the IHL (1990–1995), and the third San Diego Gulls of the West Coast Hockey League and later the ECHL (1995–2006).
