The Baltimore Clippers were an American ice hockey team. They were the first of three Charm City entries into the American Hockey League, who played from 196276. The Clippers won their division three times: 1970–71, 1971–72, and 1973–74.

They were set up in 1962 when the Baltimore Civic Center was opened. They became the primary farm team of the New York Rangers of the National Hockey League replacing the Kitchener-Waterloo Beavers of the Eastern Professional Hockey League.

The Clippers withdrew from the AHL mid-season during 1974–75 when the World Hockey Association's Michigan Stags relocated to Baltimore as the "Baltimore Blades." The team regrouped for one more season, then transferred to the Southern Hockey League, playing one more season. The team was revived in 1979, playing two seasons in the Eastern Hockey League before that league disbanded.

The Blades team used the same set of jerseys as the Clippers. The home white jerseys had circular Blades logo sewn over the Clippers logo.

An earlier Baltimore Clippers minor league ice hockey team, in the old Eastern Hockey League, existed prior to moving to Charlotte, North Carolina in 1956 and becoming the first Charlotte Checkers.
