The Danbury Hat Tricks were announced as a member of the Federal Prospects Hockey League on May 7, 2019. Former FHL player Bill McCreary was announced a general manager and head coach. The team is owned by DP 110 LLC, the same group that had recently purchased the Danbury Ice Arena. The first signings by the team were goaltender Jordan Brant and defenseman Kruz Listmayer.
The Hat Tricks are the third FHL/FPHL team to have played in Danbury, the previous being the Whalers and Titans. The five stars in the Hat Tricks logo refer to the five previous professional teams to have played in the city; the others being the Trashers, Stars and Mad Hatters.
Besides the obvious reference to the players that score three goals in a single game, the team's name pays tribute to Danbury being known as 'Hat City' due to it being historical the center of the American hat industry.
