On March 11, 1965, NHL President Clarence Campbell announced that the league would expand to twelve teams from six through the creation of a new six-team division for the 1967–68 season. In response to Campbell's announcement, a partnership of nine men, led by Walter Bush, Jr., Robert Ridder, and John Driscoll, was formed to seek a franchise for the Twin Cities area of Minnesota.Their efforts were successful, as the NHL awarded one of its six expansion franchises to Minnesota on February 9, 1966.The "North Stars" name was announced on May 25, 1966, following a public contest.The name is derived from the state's motto "L'Étoile du Nord", which is a French phrase meaning "The Star of the North". The home of the North Stars was Metropolitan Sports Center.
