The Cornwall Aces were the AHL affiliate of the NHL's Quebec Nordiques from 1993 to 1995, and the relocated Colorado Avalanche in 1995–96. They were based in the eastern Ontario city of Cornwall, and played at the Ed Lumley Arena inside the Cornwall Civic Complex. After one season being affiliated with Colorado, the franchise went dormant for three seasons, while the Avalanche transferred players to their other affiliate, the Hershey Bears. The franchise was resurrected in 1999 as the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins.

The Cornwall Aces won two division titles during their three year stay in Cornwall. Coaches were Bob Hartley, who formerly coached the Atlanta Thrashers and Colorado Avalanche of the National Hockey League, and Jacques Martin, current head coach of the NHL's Montreal Canadiens.
