The current Utah Grizzlies franchise started as the Virginia Lancers, one of the founding members of the East Coast Hockey League. The franchise was under seven different names in five different southeastern cities from 1988 to 2003 when the Lexington Men O' War franchise suspended operations after one season. Notably, the Denver Grizzlies won the IHL Turner Cup in 1995, in the McNichols Sports Arena. After the AHL incarnation of the Grizzlies suspended operations, David Elmore and Donna Tuttle bought the rights to the dormant Lexington Men O' War franchise and moved the team to the E Center to replace the previous Grizzlies franchise.
Prior to the 2013–14 season, their NHL affiliate Calgary Flames changed their affiliation to the Alaska Aces. Incoming head coach and general manager Tim Branham announced a three-year agreement with the Anaheim Ducks on August 7, 2013. After the Grizzlies made the post-season in every season within the Ducks organization, the Grizzlies and Ducks agreed to a multi-year extension during the 2015–16 season.
Following the 2017–18, the Grizzlies missed the post-season for the first time in 11 years. At that time, their ECHL rival, the Colorado Eagles, joined the American Hockey League as an affiliate of the Colorado Avalanche after previously serving as the Avalanche affiliate in the ECHL. The Grizzlies ended their agreement with the Ducks and affiliated with the Avalanche, their closest geographical NHL club.
