1972 Chicago Cougars Tee
Capitalizing on the lack of hockey teams in a number of major American cities and mid-level Canadian cities, the WHA was the first major league to compete with the NHL. The Chicago Cougars entered the league in 1972, playing at the International Amphitheater. The Cougars were the first North American major professional hockey team to feature player numbers on the front of their jersey in the upper right corner. The next professional team to try it was the NHL's Sabres in 2006.
Following the 1974-75 season, the Cougars franchise folded after the player-owners were unable to attract more financing.
