1965-66

• Beginning this season, teams are required to suit up two goaltenders for each game.

• In February, it was announced that six new franchises would be joining the NHL, beginning with the 1967-68 season. The cities awarded franchises are Los Angeles, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Oakland, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and St. Louis. The latter was unexpected, since no application from the city had been submitted. The St. Louis franchise was awarded on the wishes of the Chicago Black Hawks owners, who at that time also owned the St. Louis Arena, which they wanted to sell.

• On November 27, Gordie Howe scores his 600th career goal in a 3-2 loss at Montreal.

• Bobby Hull sets new records for most goals (54) and points (97) scored in a season.

• The Detroit Red Wings are forced to wear the uniforms of their Hamilton junior farm team for one January game in Montreal after their uniforms are stolen from the visitors' locker room the night before. (If you have an image of those uniforms, please e-mail me.)

• The Montreal Canadiens win their second straight Stanley Cup, beating the Detroit Red Wings in six games.
