Syracuse had been affiliated with the Anaheim Ducks since the 2010 season, prior to that they had been affiliated with Vancouver and Columbus.
The Crunch have changed their logo and/or their colour scheme for every previous affiliation change in the past; the team went for a total re-brand when switching from Vancouver to Columbus in 2000, when switching to Anaheim in 2010 they simply changed their colours.
