The Danbury Whalers are a minor league professional ice hockey team in the Federal Hockey League that began play in the 2010-11 season. Based in Danbury, Connecticut, the Whalers play at the Danbury Ice Arena, located in CityCenter Danbury. Their name comes from the Hartford Whalers who were a professional ice hockey team based in Connecticut and played in Hartford from 1975-1997 before relocating to Carolina.

On October 4, 2011, the Whalers announced they would serve as a farm team for the ECHL's Elmira Jackals.[1] However, as of May 2013 their main website indicates they are affiliated with the defunct Trenton Titans.

On March 22, 2013, the Whalers won their first FHL Commissioner's Cup Title by sweeping the Dayton Demonz in front of a home standing-room only crowd of 3,116 fans.[2]

The Danbury Whalers have led the FHL in home attendance in each of the four years of the league's existence.
