Are these two teams related?

Are the Reading Royals of the ECHL and the Manchester Monarchs of the AHL affiliated with each other? I'm not a big hockey buff, but the lohos look too similar for them not to be related to each other.

Both affiliated with the LA Kings, yes.

Speaking of the Royals, I live near and went to school near Reading and Royals games are a fun night out and the Sovereign Center is a high quality minor league arena. I highly recommend getting to a game if you ever commit a sin henoius enough to get you banished by God to Reading, PA in the winter.

The Royals have very classy unis and jerseys as well.

Kings, Monarchs, Royals: precisely why I named my AHL (Major League Hockey) fantasy team the Czars.

Naming the affiliated teams in the same vein lets everyone know that they're related without explicitly telling you (i.e.- St. John's Maple Leafs).

IIRC, back in the day, the Sabres minor league club was the Cincinnati Swords...

I was in Manchester last night for the AHL All-Star Game. That city has some great fans and really know how to put on a show. I've been to a couple games there. Great arena too.

I also noticed the Bridgeport Sound Tigers jerseys use the nicest shade of blue I have ever seen.

Go Pirates! :)

And now Cincinnati has the Mighty Ducks... yes, the only team called the Mighty Ducks playing pro hockey presently, and it's no where near Disneyland.
