It’s the Minnesota North Stars first game ever! The team took the ice losing expansion California Seals on the road. They played the Seals to a 3-3 tie in their first home game. Midway through the season the Stars where in the running for first place in the all expansion Western Division.

The North Stars continued to play solid hockey winning 40 games for the first time in franchise history led by Neal Broten and Bobby Smith who each scored a team high 77 points, as the Stars finished in 2nd place with a 40-24-16 record. Their colors are Green, White, Yellow, and Black.

Their logo is a Green N with a yellow outline pointing up to a yellow star.

Thanks to Mr. Gunderson’s 6th grade class at Virginia-Roosevelt Elementary School for the research on October’s Day in History.

Thanks also to Minnesota’s Learn and Serve America Service Learning Program for their help.
