The Prince Edward Island Senators are a former ice hockey team that played in the American Hockey League from 1993 to 1996. Originally located in New Haven, Connecticut for 21 seasons, including one as the affiliate of the Ottawa Senators, the franchise relocated to Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island for the 1993–94 American Hockey League season. During their three seasons on PEI they finished either last or second last in attendance in the AHL, with average attendance ranging from 2,300 to 2,500. The biggest NHL player to come out of the PEI organization would be Pavol Demitra, who spent three seasons on the Island. The franchise was forced to suspend operations after the 1996 season, claiming that it was not possible to keep an AHL team in a city as small as Charlottetown.
