With the return of baseball -- potentially -- on the horizon for Atlantic City, people might forget there was also once a hockey team that played at Boardwalk Hall.

From 2001 to 2005, the Atlantic City Boardwalk Bullies were a member of the ECHL, but like most pro sports teams in the city, attendance problems forced the team to leave.

But they did have success on the ice. In fact, 15 years ago this week, the Boardwalk Bullies won the Kelly Cup, beating the Columbia Inferno in the finals.

Following their run in Atlantic City, the team moved to Stockton, California. Now, the team is currently known as the the Adirondack Thunder playing in Glens Falls, NY.
