1974-1975 Preseason

The NHL expands by 4 teams again in part to complete its commitment to potential WHA owners.

Edmonton and Hartford complete arenas and join the league.

Kansas City and Cincinnati join as well. Washington had applied but Baltimore vetoed as they are within their territorial rights.

Other cities begin to look at the failing Buffalo franchise to purchase and move.

In the amateur draft KC couldn't get a decent scouting network up and draft Mike O'Connell (?) first overall. Bernie Federko goes to Edmonton in 2nd.

Buffalo fearing for Dan Bouchard's mental health take Mike Liut at 5th overall.

The pundits look to New York, Boston and Montreal to battle for the cup.
