The Philadelphia Firebirds joined the NAHL for the 1974-75 season with possibly one of the oddest bird logos ever. The red and yellow logo comes together to spell an 'F' for Firebirds with a wild color scheme. On the ice, the Firebirds would find success with future NHL netminder Rejean Lemelin, and an NAHL title in 1976. Following the 1976-77 season, the Firebirds moved to the AHL. The team would play two more seasons in Philadelphia after that before moving to Syracuse, NY for one final season. Long time NHL referee Paul Stewart played for the Firebirds, as well as 1980 Olympic hero Mike Eruzione.
