Buffalo Frontiers

The Buffalo Frontiers might be the most unknown team we've ever come across. We know they existed, that much is certain. The evidence of this that we can find is a single Clinton Comets game program from the 1949-50 season that lists the Comets' opponent at the Buffalo Frontiers and provides their roster. 

The team existed during the 1940s or 1950s, back when a lot of teams still played independent hockey or "barn stormed" as there weren't always organized leagues in all regions. You'd put together a schedule against college, pro, and semi-pro or amateur teams and there wasn't a formal league around it. The Clinton Comets played this way from 1947-51 in fact. 

The Frontiers, we think, were actually the Frontier Blue Banners that played in the Buffalo Municipal hockey league. That would make them a local men's league team in the Buffalo area and it makes sense they'd be playing the Clinton Comets from a few hours away. But the program lists them as the Buffalo Frontiers, so we went with that. 

Not knowing much else about the Frontiers, we decided to put together our own logo creation. It is Frontier themed with a blue banner and a tribute to one of the most obscure hockey teams we've ever come across!
