50 Years Ago the NHL Doubled the Size of its Business

Boston, New York and Chicago were in place on the American side.  But the league was about to double its size 50 years ago.  6 franchises now added another 6 to play against.  Below is a throwback article from the Hockeywriters.  Two teams came into California and Pennsylvania and one in Missouri and Minnesota.

Snagged from wikipedia:  A study published in April 2011 by the University of Toronto's Mowat Centre for Policy Innovation concluded that Canada can support 12 NHL teams, twice the number it had at the time of the study, including second franchises for Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver.
