Quebec Bulldogs, Hamilton Tigers, Pittsburgh Pirates, Detroit Falcons, Charlotte Speeders, Toronto Arenas, Philadelphia Quakers, St. Louis Eagles, Brooklyn Americans, Atlanta Flames, Kansas City Scouts…
Believe it or not, all but one of those franchises was a member of the National Hockey League at some point.
The NHL just produced a fun video that uses a moving map of North America to trace its expansion and logo changes over the course of the league’s 100-year history.
Watch as the NHL grows from three teams to 31 in less than three and a half minutes.
It will get you all warm and nostalgic for the beautiful logos of eras bygone, and there’s a good chance you’ll be like, “Oh, wow, I didn’t know the Regina Razors were a real team?!”*
Fun stuff. Well done, NHL.
*They were not.
