This week i continue the Hockey theme and bring you a lil info on the Quebec Nordiques. The Quebec Nordiques formed as one of the original WHA teams in 1972. The team was originally awarded to a group in San Francisco and were to become the San Francisco Sharks. As luck has it the San Francisco group went broke before the start of the first season. The WHA quickly sold the organization to a Quebec City-based group. They were named the Nordiques because they were one of the northern-most teams in professional sports in North America. “Nordiques” means “Northmen” or “Northerners”. Then in 1994-1995 due to money issues, like most sports teams the Quebec Nordiques moved and went on to become the Colorado Avalanche. Stay Tuned for more New Era Fitteds from Ecapcity.com.
