Kansas City Scouts, 1974 – 1976
Where they came from: The Kansas City Scouts and the Washington Capitals were expansion teams for the 1974-1975 season.
Where they went: Relocated to Denver and became the original Colorado Rockies
Where they are now: The franchise currently resides in Newark, New Jersey as the New Jersey Devils.
Eulogy: The team’s name and logo derives from a local landmark, a statue called “The Scout” which is a memorial to local Native American tribes. After two years of bad attendance and even worse hockey, the Scouts were sold and moved away. This remains Kansas City’s one and only team in major professional hockey.
