What were the first NHL hockey teams?

First NHL Teams Many cite an six original NHL hockey teams:

  • Montreal Canadiens
  • Toronto Maple Leafs
  • Boston Bruins
  • Detroit Red Wings
  • Chicago Black Hawks
  • New York Rangers

Here is more of the story.

In 1917, four teams -- the Montreal Canadiens, Montreal Wanderers, Ottawa Senators and Quebec Bulldogs -- joined together to form the National Hockey League. Since the Bulldogs were unable to play during the league's inaugural season, the remaining owners granted a temporary franchise to the Toronto Arena Company in order to balance out the schedule. This "temporary" franchise becames the Toronto St. Patricks in 1919, (the same season charter member Quebec was finally able to resume operations) and the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1926.

In that first season, after just six games, the Wanderers' rink burned to the ground, and the team "wandered" out of the league, never to be heard from again.

The Quebec Bulldogs became the Hamilton Tigers lasted 5 seasons in the early 20s. Then the Montreal Maroons and the Boston Bruins were born, and the "traditional" NHL takes shape in the 1930s. The Montreal Maroons actually enjoyed some success until the 1930s.

For those looking for a list of 12, they would be:

  • Toronto Arenas
  • Montreal Canadiens
  • Ottawa Senators
  • Montreal Wanderers
  • Quebec Bulldogs
  • Hamilton Tigers
  • Montreal Maroons
  • Boston Bruins (The franchise dates from 1924.)
  • Pittsburgh Pirates
  • New York Americans
  • Detroit Red Wings
  • Chicago Black Hawks

That brings us to 1926-27, by the way. Thanks to the NHL Official Guide and Record Book, for the exact team names.

The Senators became defunct in 1933-34, and the current franchise took the same name 60 years later.
