An Ice Hockey Wiki article.

The 1976 NHL Amateur Draft was held at the NHL office in Montreal, Quebec. It is notable as featuring one of the weakest first rounds in draft history, as only two players (Green and Federko) played more than 450 career NHL games. The Cleveland Barons drafted as the California Golden Seals and the Colorado Rockies took part as the Kansas City Scouts. The two franchises would relocate to their new cities in July.
