The Saint John Flames were an ice hockey team in the American Hockey League from 1993 to 2003 in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada. The Calgary Flames bought and relocated the Utica Devils, to be their AHL affiliate.

The Saint John Flames won the 2001 Calder Cup Championship on home ice at Harbour Station against the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, the farm team of the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Flames won the series four games to two with a final score of 1–0. The Flames also played in the Calder Cup Finals in 1998, losing to the Philadelphia Phantoms.

The franchise was relocated to Omaha, Nebraska in 2005 where it played for two seasons as the Omaha Ak-Sar-Ben Knights before relocating once again for the 2007–2008 season to become the Quad City Flames, and finally relocating to Abbotsford, British Columbia for the 2009-2010 season. At the time, the St. John's Maple Leafs were left as the last remaining Atlantic Canadian AHL club. Subsequently, the Toronto Maple Leafs moved their affiliate to Toronto. The Saint John market is currently served by the QMJHL's Saint John Sea Dogs.
