1991–92 OHL season

The 1991–92 OHL season was the 12th season of the Ontario Hockey League. The Dukes of Hamilton relocated, and became the Guelph Storm. Sixteen teams each played 66 games. The Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds won the J. Ross Robertson Cup, defeating the North Bay Centennials.

RelocationEdit

Hamilton Dukes to Guelph StormEdit

The Hamilton Dukes relocated to the city of Guelph after two seasons in Hamilton. The club would be renamed to the Guelph Storm and play at the Guelph Memorial Gardens. Guelph had previously hosted an OHL franchise from 1982-1989, the Guelph Platers. The Platers won the 1986 Memorial Cup. The franchise relocated to Owen Sound following the 1988-89 season.

The Storm would remain in the Emms Division.

New ArenaEdit

Detroit Compuware AmbassadorsEdit

The Detroit Compuware Ambassadors moved into Joe Louis Arena following one season of play at Cobo Arena. This arena was also the home of the Detroit Red Wings of the National Hockey League.
