The Cleveland Crusaders were a professional ice hockey team from Cleveland, Ohio, that played in the World Hockey Association from 1972 to 1976. The team planned to relocate to South Florida and become the Florida Breakers in 1976. After the proposed move fell through, the Crusaders relocated to St. Paul, Minnesota, and became the second incarnation of the Minnesota Fighting Saints.
