Troy Uncle Sam's Trojans

The Trojans were only around for one year, but they definitely have one of the more unique logos and names in hockey history. The team was based in Troy, NY home to Samuel Wilson who is supposed to be the man the 'Uncle Sam' moniker is based on. Trojans also refers to what people from Troy are called, in the same way you would call someone from New York a New Yorker. Thus, the team was called the Troy Uncle Sam's Trojans and used the famous character as their logo. The team was player/coached by Bill Moe, who spent a number of years with the New York Rangers in the 1940s and EHL legend John Brophy played four games for the team. The franchise would only last one year, 1952-53, and would miss the playoffs.
