The Evansville IceMen were founded in 2008, joining the All American Hockey League.
After the International Hockey League Muskegon Lumberjacks franchise was relocated to Evansville and became the Evansville IceMen, the inactive Rochester Mustangs franchise of the USHL relocated to Muskegon, taking on the name Muskegon Lumberjacks. The IHL folded in 2010, at which point the club moved to the Central Hockey League.
In 2012 the team joined the ECHL.
