NHA

The NHA-NHL section, spanning almost a hundred years, is broken up into a few separate pages. This is the original NHA page.

The following is a chart showing each and every team in the original National Hockey Association. All team name or location changes are highlighted in bold with a green background so they are easy to pick out. All remaining teams at the end of the 1916-17 season made up the bulk of the new NHL, launched in time for the 1917-18 season.

Information based on stuff I knew as well as on entries in Wikipedia.
