The California Golden Seals are a former National Hockey League team that played there from 1967 to 1976. Initially a Western Hockey League franchise named the San Francisco Seals, the team was moved to the NHL as a part of the 1967 NHL Expansion and initially named California Seals, in an attempt to please to the fans the Bay Area in California. They would soon be renamed Oakland Seals, name by which thy went by until 1970. The Seals were never successful at the gates, and not much on the ice either. Left without any other choice, the club folded in 1976 and was moved to become the Cleveland Barons. Unable to do better than their predecessors, the Barons were merged with the Minnesota North Stars in 1978.
