Baltimore allowed the American Hockey League to roll on for 26 years (1936-1962), perhaps looking for it to smooth out the rough edges before deciding to get involved. Voila, The Baltimore Clippers.Jumping in at the start of the 1962-63 campaign, when the league was a nine-team, two-division operation, the Clippers made it to the playoffs the first year. Over the next 14 years -- the team passed into the AHL archives in 1976 -- Baltimore made the playoffs eight times, a reasonable .571 success rate.

When the Baltimore Bandits took the Arena ice for the first time as an American Hockey League franchise Saturday, there was a highly appreciative crowd of nearly 5,000 responding to their every move . . . . even to the penalty box. It was an exhibition game.The last time the city was a member of the AHL, as the Baltimore Skipjacks in 1992-93, regular-season games drew an average of 3,000 fans. The previous 10 years of their existence, the Jacks had averaged 3,375 per contest, which usually placed them about eighth in attendance in the 13-14-15-team league.

Lamoureux assisted on the game's first goal, then scored the second. Hershey led 4-0 after two periods.
