Erie Blades


The Erie Blades won three consecutive championships from 1978-81, the first as a member of the NEHL, and the last two as participants in the EHL.  Coach Nick Polano was head coach of all three cup-winning teams.  The teams' overall record for their three championship years: 145-54-12.  In 1981 the team ventured into the AHL, and while supplying three NHL teams with players, fell to a 52-loss season.
