The Indianapolis Capitals were an American Hockey League professional ice hockey team based in Indianapolis, Indiana from 1939–1952. The Capitals were a farm team for the Detroit Red Wings. Indianapolis won the Calder Cup in 1942 and 1950. They played in the Indiana State Fairgrounds Coliseum.

There was also a Central Hockey League team with a similar name, the Indianapolis Capitols, which also played in the Pepsi Coliseum in 1963. They played nine games before being relocated to Cincinnati (to play as the Cincinnati Wings) due to an explosion that rendered the Coliseum unusable.
