The franchise was formed in 2010 as an original franchise in the 2010–11 season of the Continental Junior Hockey League (CJHL). Michael Beavis was announced as the Stampede's first head coach having been an assistant coach with the Syracuse Stars of the Eastern Junior Hockey League as well as the Oswego Admirals of the Ontario Junior Hockey League. On October 4, 2010, two weeks before the CJHL's expected start date, the league announced the Stampede and two other teams would not participate during the 2010–11 season, instead being added as expansion teams for a 2011-12 season that never took place.

Instead, the Stampede began play in 2011 in the Mid Atlantic Division of International Junior Hockey League (IJHL) Super Elite League. The team played out of the Cicero Twin Rinks in Cicero, New York. The Stampede went on to a 35-5-2 record winning the conference and advancing to the IJHL National Championship game where they lost in the finals to National Sports Academy.

The Stampede entered the 2012–13 in a new league, the Northern States Hockey League (NSHL). The team finished second in the regular season before winning the playoff championship against the Lake George Fighting Spirit. The Stampede also finished in 3rd place at the United Hockey Union National Tournament in April 2013 losing the semifinal game 1-0 in a shootout.

The team moved to the Greater Baldwinsville Ice Arena in Baldwinsville, New York for the 2013–14 season.

The Stampede and the NSHL were acquired by the Tier II North American Hockey League and were renamed the North American 3 Eastern Hockey League (NA3EHL) during the 2014–15 season after leaving the UHU with hopes to gain USA Hockey sanctioning which they attained prior to the 2015–16 season.

In April 2015, the team relocated to Morrisville State College in Morrisville, New York. Morrisville is a D-3 school in the State University of New York Athletic Conference and the Stampede felt that the exposure its players will receive during the season will be highly beneficial to their goal of playing at the college level.

Prior to the 2016–17 season, the Stampede became part of the North American 3 Hockey League (NA3HL) when it absorbed the NA3EHL.

On, May 24, 2017 the Syracuse Stampede announced they were relocating to Oswego, New York and would be renamed the Oswego Stampede.  The team will be based out of the Anthony J Crisafulli Arena in Oswego and would change their team colors to match those of the Maine Black Bears of Hockey East.
