It's a common misnomer that the NHL's Original Six were the league's original six teams. The league formed in Canada in 1917 but the "Original Six" refers to the half dozen teams that composed the NHL from 1942 until the 1967 expansion. An easy way to think about it is after the expansion there were six "new" teams and six "original" teams. By the way, the Original Six are the Boston Bruins, Chicago Blackhawks, Detroit Red Wings, Montreal Canadiens, New York Rangers, and Toronto Maple Leafs.
The 1967 NHL expansion saw the addition of the Los Angeles Kings, Philadelphia Flyers, Pittsburgh Penguins, and St. Louis Blues. The two other teams that joined the NHL at this time, the California Seals and the Minnesota North Stars, merged in 1978. In 1993, they relocated to Texas and changed their name to the Dallas Stars. The league eventually awarded new teams to Northern California and the state of Minnesota. The San Jose Sharks joined the NHL in 1991 and Minnesota Wild began play in 2000.
Despite the fact that the NHL started in Canada, and most of its players are from that nation, the Great White North is home to just six teams: Canadiens, Maple Leafs, Calgary Flames, Edmonton Oilers, Vancouver Canucks, and Ottawa Senators. The Quebec Nordiques were the country's eighth franchise but they relocated to Denver in 1995 and became the Colorado Avalanche. The Winnipeg Jets were the seventh Canadian club until they skated out of Manitoba for Arizona in 1996. Once in the Grand Canyon State they were renamed the Phoenix Coyotes.
Phoenix is not the only NHL franchise selling hockey tickets in a city noted for sun instead of ice. Other teams located in sunshine-rich areas of the United States are the Anaheim Ducks, Atlanta Thrashers, Carolina Hurricanes, Florida Panthers, and Tampa Bay Lightning. With the exception of the Hurricanes, who once played in Hartford, all the aforementioned teams entered the league after 1993.
The Canadiens are the NHL's most successful franchise. As of 2011, the "Habs" have won 24 Stanley Cups and they've have the most players enshrined in the Hockey Hall of Fame (52). The NHL has officially recognized nine Stanley Cup dynasties and the Canadiens own three of them including the only dynasty comprised of five consecutive championships. Montreal is also one of two teams that have won four consecutive Stanley Cup titles. The other NHL team that won four straight Stanley Cups is the New York Islanders of the early 1980's.
The exciting and entertaining brand of hockey played in the NHL is best seen live.
