The Salt Lake Golden Eagles were a minor professional hockey team based in Salt Lake City, Utah from 1969 to 1994. Now in 2013-2014 we return to Salt Lake to play in the Mountain West Hockey League(MWHL).
The original team played in the Western Hockey League from 1969 to 1974, the Central Hockey League from 1974 to 1984 and the International Hockey League from 1984 to 1994. The Golden Eagles home ice was the Salt Palace from 1969 to 1991, and the Delta Center (now EnergySolutions Arena) from 1991 to 1994. In 1994 Larry H. Miller, who also owned the Utah Jazz and the Delta Center, sold the team to Detroit, Michigan interests. The Golden Eagles became the Detroit Vipers.
