The History of Professional Hockey in North America
To celebrate the opening of the new season, we’re releasing to the public something we’re extremely excited about and have worked hard to produce. Introducing…The History of Professional Hockey in North America (1901–2014).
It’s a giant infographic that chronicles the origin and evolution of every major professional hockey team to play in North America, from the first professional hockey league in 1901, to the formation of the NHL, to the present day.
You can follow the fascinating histories of every team and league, including championships, from the Montreal Le National to the Montreal Canadiens, from the Pittsburgh Bankers to the Pittsburgh Penguins, from the IPHL to the WHA. Also included is a map of the location of every single major professional team in history and a graph of Stanley and Avco Cup winners.
It’s also available in two formats: on high-quality poster paper, or as a premium fine art print. For the fine art print, there’s only ever going to be 50 printed. Ever. So, once they’re sold out, they’re gone for good.
Here’s some more detailed images of it…
Follow every franchise, from inception to the present day. The timelines also show years a franchise won a championship or was a finalist.
We don’t gloat often, but we think it’s totally awesome. And we’re excited to share this with everyone and hope you like it as much as we do!
