Toledo Goaldiggers Custom Fitted Cap

The Toledo Goaldiggers were an International Hockey League franchise that played in Toledo, Ohio from 1974 to 1986. Prior to the Goaldiggers, the city's hockey teams were the Toledo Hornets (1970–1974) and the Toledo Blades (1963–1970). When the Hornets moved to Lansing, Michigan to become the Lancers after the 1973-1974 season, the IHL rewarded Toledo the expansion Goaldiggers. After the 1985–1986 season, the Goaldiggers suspended operations, then following a sale to Russ and Diane Parker and a move to Kansas City, Missouri, resurfaced in 1990 as the Kansas City Blades.

The Goaldiggers won the Turner Cup Championship in 1975, 1978, 1982, and 1983.

One of the most famous Goaldiggers was Mike Eruzione, who played with the 1980 Miracle on Ice U.S. ice hockey team. Eruzione was a Goaldigger for the previous two seasons before joining the U.S. national team.
