The Buffalo Wings are a defunct professional roller hockey team that was based in Buffalo, NY from 1997 through 1999.

History

The Buffalo Wings franchise was originally the Phoenix Cobras from 1994 to 1995, and the Empire State Cobras in 1996.

The 1996 Cobras consisted of former Buffalo Stampede players who joined the team after their franchise folded following the 1995 Roller Hockey International season.

Following the demise of Roller Hockey International, the organization continues to exist to this day as a youth hockey development organization. The professional team has been revived at least once (in 2004)in the Professional Indoor Hockey Association.
