The Manchester Monarchs were a professional ice hockey team in the American Hockey League (AHL). They played in Manchester, New Hampshire, at the Verizon Wireless Arena.
They have been the AHL affiliate of the National Hockey League (NHL) Los Angeles Kings since 2001. For the 2015–16 season, the Monarchs traded places with the Kings’ affiliate in the ECHL, the Ontario Reign; the AHL franchise moved to Ontario, California, and play at Citizens Business Bank Arena where they became the new Ontario Reign, while the ECHL team moved to New Hampshire retaining the Manchester Monarchs name.
The Monarchs’ last season in the AHL also marked their only Calder Cup victory.
